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.
