In this paper the author points out the importance of diagnosing failures to prevent a recurrence. Emphasis is placed on looking for the tell-tail markings and clues that will aid in tracing the cause of various engine parts failures; also, on the inspection of used parts and the selection of new parts. It is also pointed out that the selection of premium replacement parts may be necessary under certain operating conditions.
