NORDBERG FS AND TSGL BASE DAMAGE

Common Repairs for the ES and TSGL Nordberg Engines:

The repairs in this section are common for the FS and TSGL NORDBERG Engines. Since many of these units have 100,000 or more hours, the problem has developed. Checking main frame base bolts for proper torque could help reduce the problem. Yearly inspection should be made of outlined areas. REYNOLDS-FRENCH has made repairs on these engines worldwide.
