Disadvantages of the D5BA engine

  • These engines are considered problematic and were soon replaced by French diesels;
  • A massive two-row timing chain can stretch after 100 – 150 thousand km;
  • Camshaft beds are also subject to very rapid wear here;
  • From impurities in the fuel, destruction begins inside the high pressure fuel pump and the nozzles become clogged;
  • On long runs in the connecting rod, the head under the piston pin bushing breaks.
