This year's International Big R Show in Las Vegas will feature a seminar on heavy-duty engine failure analysis.

The show, sponsored by the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association, is being organized around the theme of diesel engine remanufacturing. The association's Heavy Duty Remanufacturing Group has assembled industry experts to cover how and why engine failures occur and how to prevent them.

Speakers include Bob Gaylen, of TAWAS Inc. in Noblesville, Ind., who will chair the seminar, and Steve Scott, technical service manager for IPD. Gaylen's company analyzes failures and recommends solutions to many OEMs and large users of diesel engines. Scott's company, IPD, will be exhibiting in the heavy-duty engine section of the show.

The association is currently working on recruiting additional speakers to join Gaylen and Scott. The show is slated for Oct. 31 through Nov. 2.
