T52090 Hydraulic Cam Bearing Removal Kit for GE FDL Engines With Mechanical Fuel Systems
This kit is used to remove those few camshaft bearings that are very difficult to remove. To remove a bearing, the camshaft flange is disconnected one joint toward the generator end of the engine from the identified cam bearing. All crosshead rollers are raised and pinned from the cam bearing location to the free end of the engine. The cam shaft is slid forward toward the free end of the engine sufficiently to mount the four brass spacers in the adjacent camshaft bolting flange. The hydraulic ram and adapter assembly is then bolted to the cam flange. The pump is connected to the ram and the cam bearing can then be removed with a minimum of effort.
