Camshaft lubricating oil system


This system lubricates the camshaft bearings, the roller guides and supplies oil to the hydraulic exhaust valve gear. The oil circulates in a closed system, consisting of a tank, one service pump and one stand-by, a cooler and a filter to the camshaft mechanism and then is drained back to the tank through a magnetic filter. The system can be delivered as a unit (Camshaft Lubricating Oil Unit).
