Having said that, a starter can fail at any time. I have had the starter shaft shear on 1st attempt, it has
also sheared at 40% during normal starting. During compressor wash, the load on the starter is more than
doubled so it has a much greater chance of failing. I don,t think there is much to be done in terms of
extending life beyond what we already do .....
We follow a slightly modified procedure to what is stated in 2J-T56-101CL-1:
Allow detergent mix to enter engine until it is flowing from intake, then motor engine for 1 minute, allow
minimum 5 minutes soak time (or move on to next engine).
Open the rinse water and wait for clean water to flow from the intake, motor engine for 1 minute, wait 1 minute
or move on to next engine. Keep doing this until clean water is coming out of turbine. During the last motoring,
stop the water at +-30 seconds but keep motoring until 1 minute to vent excess fluids. Complete dry-out run
withing 4 hours
