A novel use for a spare engine

Lebanese distributor Ghaddar Machinery has used a scrap engine as a talking point for customers and for training purposes.

Lebanese distributor Ghaddar Machinery has come up with an innovative use for a scrap engine by turning it into an aid for parts training.

The Sidon-based firm’s service department stripped out the 4000 Series engine and cut away sections of the block so the engine’s inner workings could be seen.

The engine’s cut-out areas – each showing a specific function of the engine – were highlighted by being treated, repainted in yellow and coated.

“The engine is a centre of attraction for visitors to our showroom,” said Mohamed Afif Ghaddar, marketing and business development manager. It will also be used for training overviews.
