Disadvantages of the REBA engine
- The engine does not tolerate bad fuel, candles and coils quickly fail;
- Then, due to a clogged filter in the tank, an expensive fuel pump can break down;
- An unreliable pump is often the cause of overheating and breaking through the cylinder head gasket;
- Oil fogging is most often caused by crankcase ventilation clogging;
- The resource of hydraulic chain tensioners and hydraulic compensators depends on the quality of the lubricant.
