EPA Emission Regulations Regarding Remanufactured Diesel Engines
The Clean Air Act of 1970 was essentially the first major environmental safety and regulatory law in the United States. The law was enforced by the newly created Environmental Protection Agency also created the same year. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was the brainchild of increasing public concern in the 1950s and 1960s regarding the human impact on the environment. Specific incidents such as the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, the destruction of environmental preserves through the creation of the Federal Highway Interstate System and Rachel Carson’s whistleblowing ecological novel, Silent Spring brought the need for a regulatory agency to oversee environmental issues. For years congress could not come to a discernable solution that would appease both political parties. It was Senator Henry M. Jackson of Washington State that broke the stalemate when he wrote Bill 1075 which evolved into the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. This was the first of many laws regarding clean air, water and wilderness protection. It was Richard Nixon in 1970 that created the EPA under the guise of having one agency that oversaw and enforced all environmental issues. ... Read more

Cummins Pioneers 3D Printing Technology to Produce Diesel Engine Parts
Leading heavy-duty diesel engine manufacturer, Cummins Inc., is pioneering the use of 3D Printing technology to produce and repair critical engine parts. Unlike many manufacturers in the diesel industry, Cummins has its sights on future technology; recently unveiling the first electric engine for semi-trucks. The company believes that in order to thrive in the 21st century it must innovate new technologies rather than adapt to them. Although, 3D Printing is still in its infancy it is becoming more common place for manufacturers due to the potential cost and time to market savings. ... Read more
New Diesel Emissions Technology Unveiled - ACCT
We all know of the emissions issues that surround the diesel engine community. It has been a battle between the EPA, Manufacturers and Consumers for well over 20 years now. Physics.org has just broken a story that might revolutionize the industry in terms of emissions control. Scientists at Loughborough University’s School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering have developed new technology that further converts NOx exhaust into harmless nitrogen and water. The problem with current emissions technology is that it doesn’t fully burn emissions particles a lower temperature points. The standard Selective Catalytic Reduction System (SCR) takes exhaust gas and further recirculates it through the combustion chamber to burn off larger hydrocarbon chains. ... Read more
Rolling Coal Ban Enacted in Colorado
Rollin’ Coal… nothing more wild than driving down the highway blasting a little black smoke from 7 inch chrome stacks. There has been much debate in recent years as to the health and well being of general public. Rolling Coal itself is not illegal however as of July 2014 the EPA stated that any modifications that bypass or defeats or renders emission control systems is illegal. Older manual pre-emissions engines, without modern day emission systems, have been grandfathered in and thus street legal. All vehicles regardless of modifications must pass emissions requirements per the year they were manufactured. ... Read more
Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Information
The diesel engine industry has encountered many changes over the past 20 years or with the advent of the EPA Tier Emissions Regulations on first enacted in 1994. Since then, the regulations and standards of allowable NOx emissions have gotten more strict thus forcing engine manufacturers to make drastic engineering changes to their products. The early years were difficult for the manufactures as emissions technology was often cumbersome, prone to maintenance issues and expensive. However, the DPF, EGR and SCR systems have all gotten much better as the major players in the industry learned to adapt. ... Read more
Big Win For John Deere Owners Over ECM Modifications
In the heavy duty equipment world there has always been an unspoken battle between the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and the Aftermarket and/or Independent Dealers. The rift goes back roughly 100 years when the first automotive dealers began popping up in mass. Ford, GM, Chrysler as well as long gone brands like Plymouth, Auburn and Hudson all kept an efficient supply chain including the service department, dealership, wholesaler and manufacturer. ...

CAT C7 Specs and Engine History
At the turn of the century there was a lot of buzz around a new diesel engine being produced at Caterpillar, one that could meet the growing emissions requirements enacted by the EPA. The Caterpillar C7 Engine was supposed to be the “golden child” in Caterpillar diesel engine lineup; one that combined raw horsepower with computer controlled clean emissions. However, sometimes things don’t go according to plan. The engine was produced from 2003 to 2009 and was installed primarily in over the road medium duty class 8 trucks. All of the big players in the trucking industry hopped on board hoping the CAT C7 was going to live up to the hype. Paccar Freightliner, Ford and GMC all purchased the engine in droves ... Read more
