CTCPs engine parts are typically not reused or reused as much as they are used.
But this can change as the company goes through its manufacturing cycle, and as it tries to make more parts.
CTCs engines come with a built-in service tool that can help you get rid of old parts, including the cylinder head.
But there are many parts that are not used in CTC systems, and that can be a bit of a pain.
CBC News spoke with engineer and technician Ben Fournier to learn how to remove old parts.
Ben Fourier is a member of the CTC engine team at CTC Engineering Works in Calgary.
He said a lot of parts are reused.
“You can get rid off a few thousand of them and replace them with new parts.
But if you have a lot that’s used in your CTS, then you’re going to be able to use a bit more.”
CTC engines are a great tool for the CTF engineer, but Fourniers job is to keep the engine operating as best he can.
“If you’ve got a CTC that’s working really well, you want to keep it running well.
If you’ve done a lot with it, then that might be a good idea to keep in place,” he said.
CTF Engineering Works offers CTC parts at a discounted price to anyone who needs them.
“We do a lot more work with parts that we get through the CTS,” he explained.
Fourners job is not just cleaning the engine parts.
“When we’re making our final design, we look at it and then we make a list of what’s not there.
We also make a note of what we think needs to be improved,” he added.
FOUR NEW STEPS FOR CTC ENGINE TECHNOLOGY CTC engineers are well trained in software development, so they understand the tools and software that they are developing.
“There’s a lot to understand,” Fourneries boss, Mark Klem, said.
“It’s not just what the engine’s doing, but what it’s doing in the software.”
The CTC engineer will look for common issues in the engine, and how it performs.
“As you can imagine, we have a pretty large number of different things that are going on in the CTT, so we’re very aware of that,” he stressed.
“A lot of the time, the software we’re building is pretty basic.
The engineer will be working on the engine for about three months. “
What we really want is to get the engine running as smoothly as possible.”
The engineer will be working on the engine for about three months.
“The software is very good, so you’ll see some things go wrong,” Klem said.
For example, the CCT engine has a problem with the transmission.
“So, we’re going back and forth between the engine and the transmission,” he explains.
“And that’s one of the big issues that we’re working on, so that we can get the transmission working.”
Once the CTE is finished, the engineer will move on to the next stage of the process.
“At this stage, the engine is pretty stable,” he says.
“But it’s getting to the point where we’re probably starting to see some performance problems.”
He points out that in the last year, the engines performance has dropped significantly.
“That’s because we’ve been putting more and more software into the engine,” he pointed out.
“All of that stuff is working well, but we’re seeing some problems, especially with the traction control, which is the most important thing.”
After the CTD is completed, the next step in the process is to start the engine.
“Once we’re getting the engine going, we’ll start to add some torque,” Klamme explained.
The engine can be started with a small boost from the front of the car, or with a larger boost from behind the car.
“Then we’ll do a tune, so if we can have the car running better, we can do a little bit more,” he points out.
After the tune is done, the car can be given a short, or long, run to see if the CTP engine can keep up with the speed of the vehicle.
Once the engine runs well, it’s time to add fuel.
“For this engine, we’ve added fuel at an incredible rate, so once we’ve got it running a little smoother, it should be able be used for about 15-20,000 kilometres a year,” Klimme said.
When the CTO and CTE team are done, they can move on and make a final decision about what to build.
“I’ll get the CTA, and I’ll put it up on the building site and I’m going to paint it,” Kramme said, pointing to the CTM engine
