Damaged Gear Train on a Sulzer RND

 

 

A noisy timing gear train prompted the Chief Engineer to stop the engine and undertake an examination. What he found was not a pretty sight.

The damage was extensive and necessitated replacement of the entire gear train 

What caused the damage? a 10mm allen key, which somebody left inside the engine lying across the teeth of one of the gear wheels.
