Detroit Diesel Corp. has rolled out its MBE 900 reliabilt
engine. With more than 350,000 MBE 900 engines in service today, DDC
remanufacturing engineers developed the reliabilt remanufactured MBE 900 engine
to provide a dependable, reduced cost, fast exchange engine service option to
increase customer vehicle up-time.
The DDC reliabilt process begins with complete disassembly
of the engine core. Each component part is cleaned, inspected, tested,
qualified and restored to blueprint specifications. In addition, the engine is
updated to include the latest engineering improvements.
Components are remanufactured with the use of advanced
measurement and machining techniques or replaced with new, genuine Mercedes
Benz engine parts. All reliabilt engines include new pistons, oil cooler cores,
gaskets, filters, hoses, wiring harnesses, bearings, seals, vibration dampers,
fittings and clamps.
To validate performance, every reliabilt engine is
dynamometer tested to ensure it satisfies the original factory test specifications.
Maintaining the engine’s original compression ratio provides optimized fuel
economy, reduced emissions, good cold weather starting and restored power. All
reliabilt engines are covered by a one-year/100,000 mile warranty, worldwide.
Extended service coverage is also available.
The MBE 900 reliabilt engines are available from the Detroit
Diesel Distributor Network; Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star Truck
dealers and Thomas Built Bus dealers.
