Re: G3520C series the Power Generation stopped because error detonation in the cylinder 1 and 3.

So look, from experience, is also success we have suffered from the detonation, and are always the first to the odd cylinders to abnormal consumption problems of the pins bridges valves, which create noise that was translated into detonation, but were external mechanical noises, if uses a noise listening tool from valve covers the difference in function and perceptible, the carburetion is also reminiscent of how many degrees in advance jobs candle spark, try increasing or decreasing the ignition phase,

Could it be the cause of a faulty tappet (lifter)? and why exactly the first and third cylinders?
Maybe you'll prompt me how to adjust or check fuel ratio? we have cat com adapter III, FCF=92, moto hours=71234.
Recently regulated valves.

detonation is not only electrical problem, or valve, some time is also fuel ratio setting, or bad lambda setting,spark plugs you can performe test, same trasformer, soo you have correct tool for tuning engine ?, you have reading about make fuel setting corection?, o many hours running you have ?

G3520C series the Power Generation stopped because error detonation in the cylinder 1 and 3.

Hello. I work for a company that has many Cat G3520C series engines in the Power Generation arena.  
Power Generation G3520 stopped because error  detonation in the cylinder 1 and 3. Replace the coil and spark 1 and 3 cylinders.The gap in the valve normally.  The knock sensor is replaced by a new. After 2 days, the engine stopped. The error was repeated again.
The main control unit does not display information about the voltage on the coils. Machine rebooted but it did not help.
