Pulling cylinder liners (replaceable liner that the rings seal against, and cooling water runs over). It is showing lots of rust or corrosion...(all the orangeish reddish color), apparently cooling water treatment wasn't doing its job.
Rocker arm assemblies from the cylinders we pulled
Cylinder head resting on deck, note the valve stems sticking up.
Inside port main engine reduction gear (single reduction, single helical).
After pulling cylinder head, jacking engine over to pull this piston (note all the carbon @ top of piston!)
Port Main Engine turbocharger (Left Bank)
Just after a head was pulled, a shot showing some indications of "blow by" past the piston rings.
Flying pistons! Piston has been pulled and is being moved by the overhead crane into our piston stand so we can remove the wrist pin, separating the piston and the connecting rod.
Ride em cow-engineer ;)
