The Evolution of Engine Oil Specifications from G to K 790887
To establish a criteria for engine oil requirements for Mack diesel engines, a program was conducted to establish a specification based on the use of a production multicylinder engine. Laboratory engine tests were supplemented by field tests to assure correlation. Subsequently modifications were made to the engine test procedures to accommodate modifications in engines being marketed. Oil monitoring and oil analysis programs were also implemented to further assist in assuring adequate engine lubrication.
