Cylinder Liner Removal Tool J-45876


Detroit Diesel has released a new cylinder liner removal tool J 45876.

Details and Reason

The J-45876 cylinder liner removal tool uses a positive expansion metal collet design to ensure a secure grip on the inner diameter on the cylinder liner. Duel bearings and forcing nuts ensure friction free expansion to allow for positive engagement of the liner, and consistent cylinder liner removal. The tool includes a lifting point that threads onto the top of the forcing screw, allowing for overhead lifting of the released cylinder liner. The overhead lift point has been designed to also serve as a convenient carrying handle when the tool is being transported. See Figure 1.
