3000 KM teardown of RVS Technology Peugeot after driving without engine oil
0 Comments


We found that this much oil was left in the motor/sump. A little metal
shavings in the oil, but not much. Nothing big in the oil but just small shavings. The
degradation has started definitely. Let’s continue with the teardown. Lets take one
bearing out. Now we have one of the crankshaft bearings out lets see what the crank looks like I won’t put the camera all the way under because there might be still some residual
oil dripping. its in great shape. very shiny. Glass like sheen and surface. would say that it looks
completely normal. the bottom end looks very clean, some residual oil from nics and crannies. Doesn’t look like anything has been running hot. Looks completely normal. Let’s now look
at the bearing. It looks like it is worn. It looks like it is worn, but it is actually very smooth. You try as well It looks like there is scoring But there is no scoring you can feel. very weird. The bearing also has a very
glass like shine. Looks very worn and that it has deep grooves, but they have been filled
in and is completely smooth. Very strange. Let’s take a look another bearing and see how it looks. We’re measuring
the resistance of the bearing and it should show about zero. Surprisingly, the current does not like
to flow through the bearing. When measuring straight on the bearing surface It doesn’t want to show a reading It’s reading between 87-150 OHMS. Big resistance. The bearing looks really good. I really have to say, very minimal wear. Here is the crankshaft bearing of the Peugeot. I have built many motors and I’ll say this one is in perfect shape. Unbelievable. You can’t see very well let’s see if we can get some light to show you You can see very clearly
the contact zone where there has been heat. There is a visible oil groove and you can
also see where RVS has made a glass like surface on the friction zones The surface looks excellent nothing out of
the norm. He is still going to measure the current resistance of the crankshaft you can tell on the shaft where RVS has formed a coating and where it hasn’t So we’re going to compare the conductivity readings between the two surfaces. Now it’s on a non friction part of the crank 0,34 ohm. Now we’re on the bearing surface. The reading is fluctuating a little. Let’s call it 87 ohm from the bearing surface. 76.9 Ohm from another. Big difference Definitely some new surface has been created RVS has coated
it and is not very conductive. Some of the bearings look like they were worn but in actuality
they had all been coated and were in perfect condition. Shouldn’t use RVS in electrical components
as its not very conductive (a joke) We’re going to start putting the Peugeot back together
and see if we can get it started again.
