§ 2477.16. Requirements for Engine Rebuilders.
(a) If a TRU engine is being rebuilt to remain in compliance with the in-use standards of section 2477.5(a), it must be rebuilt in accordance with the 40 CFR, sections 89.130 and 1068.120, and 13 CCR, section 2423(l), as these sections existed on August 31, 2012, and shall meet the following requirements:
(1) To remain in compliance with the in-use performance standards, the engine must be rebuilt to a configuration of a more stringent emissions standard tier than the original engine;
(2) The engine must be rebuilt to a certified configuration of matched components. “Matched components” means a complete set of components corresponding to the certified emissions configuration (tier) of the engine that is being used as the reference for the rebuilt engine.
(b) Beginning November 14, 2012, engine rebuilders shall provide a supplemental label with each rebuilt engine that includes the following information:
(1) Name of the engine rebuilder;
(2) Engine manufacturer of the original engine
(3) Engine model;
(4) Engine model year:
(A) Prior tier engines. If the rebuilt engine meets a prior-tier emissions standard, then the effective model year is required (see definition of effective model year in section 2477.4);
(B) Current tier engines. It the rebuilt engine meets the tier standard that is currently in effect, then the model year is the year that the rebuild is completed.
(5) Horsepower rating of the certified configuration of the rebuilt engine;
(6) Emissions standard tier met by the certified configuration (e.g. Tier 4i); and
(7) Calendar year that the rebuild was completed.
(c) Supplemental labels shall be permanently affixed to the rebuilt engine in an easily accessible place, in accordance with 40 CFR, section 89.110 (for Tier 1 or Tier 2) or 40 CFR, section 1039.135 (for Tier 4). Alternative supplemental label locations and font sizes may be necessary if surface space is not available, subject to Executive Officer approval.
(d) Beginning January 13, 2013, engine rebuilders shall provide the following documentation, within 30 days of request, that demonstrates they have complied with the engine rebuilding practices of 40 CFR, sections 89.130 and 1068.120, and 13 CCR, section 2423(l):
(1) Information that demonstrates there is a reasonable technical basis for knowing that the rebuilt engine is equivalent, from an emissions standpoint, to an engine that complies with the certification standards applicable to the emissions tier standard of the rebuilt engine (i.e. tolerances, calibrations, specifications). Such equivalency would exist if the following two conditions are met:
(A) Parts installed (whether the parts are new, used, or rebuilt) are such that a person familiar with the design and function of engines would reasonably believe that the parts perform the same function with respect to emission control as the original parts; and
(B) Any parameter adjustment or design element change is made only in accordance with the original engine manufacturer's instructions or where data or other reasonable technical basis exists that such parameter adjustment or design element change, when performed on the rebuilt engine, is not expected to adversely affect in-use emissions.
(2) The technical demonstration must be signed and stamped by a licensed professional mechanical engineer.
(e) Beginning February 12, 2013, engine rebuilders shall provide a registration information document with the rebuilt engine that includes:
(1) All of the TRU or TRU gen set engine information needed to register in ARBER pursuant to subparagraph 2477.5(e)(1)(A)7 except that engine family may be omitted for rebuilt engines. This information must be the same as the information on the rebuilt engine's re-label and supplemental emissions label that is attached to the engine. The registration information document would include a certification statement by the engine rebuilder, or third party installer stating that the engine information provided is exactly the same as listed on the engine emissions label.
(2) A separate section of the registration information document shall include entry spaces for all of the TRU or TRU gen set unit information that is required to register the unit in ARBER pursuant to subparagraphs 2477.5(e)(1)(A)4 and 5. The registration information document would include a certification statement, with a signature space for the third party installer, stating that the unit information provided is exactly the same as listed on the unit label.
