The IMS Solution prevents IMS bearing failure by removing the component that breaks and leads to loss of valve timing control and the source of foreign object debris! The factory single row sealed ball bearing is comprised of an inner and outer race, bearing cage and 8 “balls” equating to a total of eleven wear components. When IMS Bearing failure occurs its not the primary failure that kills the engine, its the collateral damage from all these wear components shedding harmful debris within the engine. This foreign object debris commences to destroy every internally lubricated component within the engine; leading to complete engine loss. In some cases the debris from these failures damages so many components that an engine “rebuild” cannot be carried out without extensive parts replacement. The IMS Solution replaces eleven wear components with a single pair.
