I'm a in school to become a diesel mechanic I know what I'm talking about.

The cylinder walls glaze due to the rings not having the higher combustion pressures from being under load pushing them outward. This allows the rings and cylinders and oil to all rub each other until they are happy and polished . This glaze is a bunch of combustion by product embedded in the walls from the lack of scraping by the rings.

A couple of hours probly wont hurt it. It happens a lot in big rigs. Guys leave their engines idling all night to keep the cab warm little do they know theyre ruining their engine. Hey think what you want, if your planning on letting it idle for more then 5 hours or so bump up the idle.

So I'm guessing you "accidently" left that part out in your first post?

And I'm guessing you also forgot that NONE of us are dumb enough to let our POV idle for 5 hours?


Pick a different school homeboy.

Another thing, you don't think 17:1 compression is enough to keep the rings sealed? You know at higher RPM compression goes down right?

I'm pretty sure I have heard this before on Trucks, back when Stacy still hosted it. Went through the rings on the cylinders and how they worked and why they lasted so long.

Guess you can also tell by looking at the main bearings, for pitting and flaking. Just what I have heard. I have never pulled them on a diesel.

I've been a Master Plumber for 10 years and plumbing for 20...so I guess you could say I'm still in school too. GUESS WHAT????? I STILL DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT PLUMBING. And guess what else????? Some of the Master Plumbers I studied under did not know everything either.
