|The 21" 193-3288 Damper Gp needs to be replaced on certain 3512B Petroleum Genset Engines with the 23" 1463740/">146-3740 Damper Gp. The existing 21" damper can lead to reduced damper life and may exhibit v-belt flipping issues.|
|This rework should be performed immediately. Allow time for the engine to cool before starting this rework.
1. Remove damper as outlined within the "Removal Procedure" in media number SENR6564.

2. Replace damper with the damper (part number 1463740/">146-3740), as outlined within the "Installation Procedure" within the same SENR6564 publication.
