Successful regional meeting for FER
The Federation of Engine Re-manufacturers (FER) brought members together at a Southern Regional Meeting recently at Reigate Manor Hotel in Surrey, with engine components supplier AJUSA hosting the event. The meeting highlighted cylinder head gasket stresses, fibre gasket characteristics and uses, the ‘mls’ design, metal-elastomer gasket characteristics and uses and, cylinder head gasket tests and other verifications.
Cylinder head bolts were also discussed in detail, including their purpose and the tightening of them, as well as angular tightening advantages, the yield strength in a bolt, and operations prior to the tightening process.
The meeting also looked in-depth at turbocharger components, including justification for supercharging, its operation, the turbocharger gasket and its requirements, the composition of fitting kits, and, the oil feed pipe and its purpose, design, composition and, the need for replacement.
Attendees were able to physically see AJUSA products and were informed of the full extent of all the information AJUSA provides via its ‘Smart Labels’, including images, videos, and PDF documentation.
John Gray, FER president, said: “These meetings offer the perfect platform to connect with members and demonstrate the benefits of FER membership first hand. We thank all those who attended, especially AJUSA who offered a valuable insight into their product range.”
