Subject: Oil Seal TCWJ 20x35x7 - P.N. F-10425A
Following supply issues with IAME’s preferred supplier for the oil seal TCWJ 20x35x7 p.n. F-10425A, we have been forced to supply from a second supplier to continue with the production of the engines and the supply of spare parts.
The two components are perfectly interchangeable, quality, durability and performance are the equivalent.
The only difference is in the IAME marking present on the product from the original supplier and not present on the product from the second supplier (see pictures below).
Both parts are allowed and can be used indiscriminately.
We kindly ask you to disclose the present communication to governing bodies/race promoters/organizers for immediate application.
Engine families: M1/Gazelle/NorSwift/Mini Swift Pro-M/X30 WS/Sudam/KFS/EasyKart.
Attention IAME Dealers: There have been some reports of X30 coil failures on engine startup upon using the push button start. Below outlines what causes this failure and how to prevent it. When the start button is pushed the big current (80A approx.) feeding the starter motor passes from the battery to the button, then to [...]
Recently we have discovered that there have been a very small number of airbox tubes for the Mini Swift that were produced outside the specifications defined on the factory fiche document. The overall length is too short. Some of these have made their way into the U.S. market and have been discovered in several areas (race [...]
The vent fitting onto the X30 crankcase is provided because the gears compartment (like all the gears compartments) need to be vented. The air contained into the gears compartment is heated by the aluminum walls, by the oil and by the gears themselves, as all these parts are heated up during engine operation. As a result, [...]
A new fiche document has been posted (353/I) that shows the new wiring harness and button system recently introduced for the Mini Swift engine. This system features larger and improved buttons. There is no performance gain. The new system is now coming on new engines and also may be retrofitted to older models.
In the latest production of the Mini-Swift, KA100 and X30 engines, the USA marking has been removed from the crankcase so as to unify the production to be the same as other markets.The engine serial numbers will still be dedicated to the USA market to verify the production and importation.
All the Tillotson carburetors having the diaphragm p.n.237-162, can be equipped with two versions of the part as shown in the picture: with and without the additional hole. The concerned hole has no technical functions, so it has no influence on the engine performance. There are two different tools making the same part, they are fully interchangeable although [...]
We inform that we are being supplied with SKF BC1-3342B roller bearings inner rings showing the reference marking in variable positions. In either case they are compliant and original. The marking on the inner ring can be found alternatively on both sides of the ring. The marking can be visible on the external side, the side of the [...]
Dear all, we have recently been supplied with a quantity of roller bearings BC1-3342B (p.n.: X30125397 for the X30 engine) where the lateral washer shows a slightly different appearance featuring a small frontal groove as shown in the picture below: This is just due to the manufacturing process, probably done in a different facility. Of course the engine integrity and [...]
