Pre Lubrication arrangement for Cam Gears
In view to avoid initial
dry run of cam gears and split gear at the time of cranking, Diesel loco Shed, Burdwan has developed a pre-lubrication arrangement
on loco No. 16414 WDM2 by providing a pre-lubricating pump near L7 & L8 sump doors of power assembly. This pump is driven by DC Fuel pump motor, which has gone spare due to conversion of DC Fuel pump motor
to AC Fuel pump motor. The pre-lubricating feature is introduced in the starting circuit. In this system Pre- lubrication
pump draws lube oil from engine sump and lubricates both side cam gear and split gear for 40 seconds, then only permits the
engine to crank.
