Section IV. HOUSINGS, CASTINGS, PLATES
3-10. General. Castings or plates may be serviceable even with holes or cracks providing the internal structure is not
significantly weakened. Internal structures such as crankshaft bearing journal webs are necessary to distribute loads
within the casting. Some damage to these elements of the structure can be allowed but fatigue failures from crack
growth cannot be predicted, and service life will depend on the extent of damage.
3-11. Engine Housing, Damage. Small cracks or holes may develop in a cylinder head, block or engine housing,
caused by vibrations, overheating, or explosive shocks. Cracks that do not harm the structural strength of a housing can
be deferred but cracks that allow coolant or oil to escape must be repaired. Large holes or cracks will require exchange of
Degraded output. Frequent fluid level checks must be performed.
