Abstract:

In the examination of the causes and measurements of engine wear, the author asserts that the possibilities of increasing operation intervals between repairs of Soviet engines through improved fuel and oil anticorrosion characteristics and by the use of automatic devices for controlling fuel have not been developed as much as they should. This is indicated by the fact that under the present GOST standard 2089-64, gasoline content of sulphur is higher whereas it is insignificant under American standards. With regard to abrasion wear of engines because of dust, this factor is seasonal in most sections of the Soviet Union.
