This engine lubricant test method is commonly referred to as the Roller Follower Wear Test. Its primary result, roller follower shaft wear in the hydraulic valve lifter assembly, has been correlated with vehicles used in stop-and-go delivery service prior to 1993. It is one of the test methods required to evaluate lubricants intended to satisfy the API CG-4 performance category. This test has also been referred to as the 6.2 L Test.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
Exceptions-Where there is no direct SI equivalent, such as pipe fittings, thermocouple diameters, and NPT screw threads. Also, roller follower wear is measured in mils.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
