Causes of Engine Bearing Failure

1. Dirt

a. Dirt in the Lubricating System
The presence of dirt particles entrained in the lubrication system is one of the most frequent causes of bearing damage. The root of the problem is usually that the engine is not sufficiently clean. In line with the nature and size of the foreign
particles, the bearing will exhibit a correspondingly lesser or greater degree of circumferential scratching and, usually, any debris that may have become embedded in the lining.
Recommendation : when repairing the engine, ensure that the entire lubrication system is carefully cleaned

b. Dirt on bearing back
The presence of a foreign particle trapped between the bearing back and its housing will lead to a raised area, with the  ensuing risk of contact between this protruding high-spot and the journal. Signs of this will be seen in the area opposite
the particle, along the inner surface of the bearing, where there will be evidence of marked localized wear. Recommendation : ensure that all housings in which bearings are to be seated, are carefully cleaned prior to  assembly.
