This paper presents the results of fractographic, macrostructural, microstructural, x-ray fluorescence and durometric analysis of marine engine valves that failed during engine operation following valve restoration, which led to engine failures in two consecutive years after the repair work. The most probable reasons for the destruction of the valves are highlighted and recommendations are given to the manufacturers and companies restoring valves of such types.
