MAK 43 Fuel Pump Camshaft Follower Failures

In May 2012 the plant suffered the first failure of a fuel injection pump camshaft follower. This unit had 54,000 hours of operation and now since this first failure we have had two more similar failures. I know of one more plant with similar engines that also had a similar failure. All failures appear similar the camshaft follower arm breaks. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
