Abstract
An existing encoder system was analyzed to determine why the system had failed. This encoder system was found to have slipped off the crankshaft, resulting in the need for a new encoder mount system. A new encoder mount was designed and installed on a Detroit Diesel 3-53 engine. The encoder mount was designed to ensure positive contact with the crankshaft while not allowing the mechanism to have the same type of failure that was determined. During the validation of the encoder, the push rod connected to the fuel injector rocker arm failed, preventing further validation of the system. The failure of the push rods is described.
