This paper describes the development and application of a method for detecting bearing damage occurring in diesel engines during production engine test. The method involves the analysis of a special lube oil filter disc for content of the trace element silver which has been added to the engine main and connecting rod bearings. Use of the procedure eliminates the cost of disassembly of production engines to check for bearing damage before shipment.
