AVDS Overhaul and Remanufacturing Excellence

Remanufacturing Facilities

Our remanufacturing facilities are located within Port Canaveral in Florida, USA. Every component of the AVDS engine is requalified or remanufactured in-house. NSN Lookup maintains state of the art Metrological Facilities for measuring components to enable precise requalification of used parts and acceptance of remanufactured and newly manufactured parts. Advanced CNC machining centers are used to remanufacture components with precise quality and repeatability. A full metal de-plating and plating line allows components requiring passivating plating to be remanufactured in accordance with the original specification. Finally, an advanced paint application line enables NSN Lookup to coat components with military specification coatings such as CARC paints which ensures long service life of the remanufactured engine.


Phosphate Coating Facilities

NSN Lookup performs TT-C-490E, Type I, light phosphate coating for ferrous metals as a paint base only and MIL-DTL-16232G, heavy phosphate coating to be used on ferrous metal for corrosion protection when paint will not be applied. There are more than 300 components of the AVDS-1790-2D engine that require these treatments during the remanufacturing process.

Non-Ferrous Metal Coating Facilities

NSN Lookup performs chemical conversion film coating for aluminum and aluminum alloys. MIL-C-5541E, Type I is used as a touchup for damaged anodic coating. Anodic MIL-A-8625F film costing is used for for aluminum and aluminum alloys and as a paint base and is applied in accordance with the component detail drawings.

Non-Destructive Crack Testing

NSN Lookup performs liquid penetrant inspection in accordance with ASTM-E-1417, fluorescent and visible dye, which is used to detect cracks and flaws in non-ferrous metallic components. Magnetic Particle Inspection in accordance with ASTM-E-1444 is used to detect cracks or flaws in ferrous (ferromagnetic) metallic components.

Repair of Metallic Components

In accordance with NMWR-2815-220 and ancillary authorizations by US Army TACOM, NSN Lookup performs plating to SAE-AMS-QQ-C-320, SAE- AMS 2404E and SAE AMS-C-26074 to rebuild undersize or oversize surfaces of components. Ferrous and Non-Ferrous welding methods are also used to repair components. The latest authorizations that NSN Lookup has received for component repair processes include the use of advanced epoxy based metallic compounds for the repair of commonly degraded components. The driving purpose for NSN Lookup and TACOM in authorizing these processes is to maximize the reclamation of used components during the remanufacturing process both reducing cost and improving our recycling performance.

Electrical Accessory Remanufacturing

NSN Lookup has the capabilities in-house to remanufacture the electrical accessories of the AVDS-1790-2D engine such as:

Starter Motor (NSN 2920-01-139-3722, Part Numbers 1990272, 10479323, 11669795)

Each cylinder head is stripped to its individual components and subjected to an intense cleaning process. The cylinder barrel is crack tested and then machined with custom designed CNC honing equipment to meet the exacting standard required for re-certification for used in a remanufactured AVDS-1790-2D engine. The cylinder head components are inspected and replaced as required. The cylinder is pressure tested to ensure the valve operation. Finally, paint and preservative coatings are applied in accordance with the component drawings.

Injection Pump Remanufacturing

NSN Lookup remanufactures the AVDS-1790-2D Injection Pump in-house. The Injection Pump is an American Bosch (AMBAC) PSB-12BT pump with two injection heads known by the part numbers 11684129-1 and KT8818 as well as NSN 2910-01-073-0124. The calibration and performance of the injection pump is critical to the operation and performance of the AVDS-1790-2D engine. Each pump is remanufactured in accordance with the US Army standards and those of the OEM. NSN Lookup operates dedicated computerized test bench for the test and calibration of this pump. Each pump is run-in for 6 hours of operation before calibration begins. The pump is calibrated for precise fuel balance between cylinders and fuel flow at Idle, High-Idle Cut-off, Full-Rack and Droop. This calibration can only be done using this test bench and cannot be performed with the pump installed into the AVDS engine. Correct calibration of the Injection Pump is the key to success of any maintenance to be performed on an AVDS-1790-2D engine. NSN Lookup performs Injection Pump test and calibration services to many end users worldwide as part of their routine maintenance of the AVDS-1790-2D engine.



Oil Pump Remanufacturing

NSN Lookup remanufactures the AVDS-1790-2D Lubrication Oil Pump which has part numbers of 12468945, E8AR106-016 and NSN 2815-01-433-9603. This critical component requires significant attention and rigorous testing before re-certification for use in an AVDS-1790-2D engine. NSN Lookup uses a custom test bench to ensure that every oil pump is fully qualified for use in accordance with NMWR-2815-220.

Turbocharger Remanufacturing

NSN Lookup remanufactures the AVDS-1790-2D Turbocharger models 5HDR and T18C01, NSN 2950-01-167-1700, 2950-00-397-3384 and 2950-01-167-1699, Part Numbers 11668377-1, 12275893-1, 187727, 466392-5001 and 466392-1.
