This procedure applies to all Testastretta engines. Ducati motorcycles are beautiful expressions of form and function. Adhering to the maintenance intervals is important to ensure optimum performance. There is an urban legend that Ducati valve adjustment is mysterious and difficult. This guide will dispel that myth and help you understand the ease with which valve clearance measurement and adjustment can be accomplished. There are several methods for taking the measurements of the shims. In much of the written information and on the web forums the terms “Loaded” and “Unloaded” are frequently used. These terms evolved from working on 2-Valve and earlier Desmoquattro (4 Valve) valve trains where access was limited due to the cylinder head design. These methods will give valid results for the Testastretta engines, but are not required. Ducati has made measuring these clearances very easy. If this is your first time measuring and adjusting the desmodromic engines, take your time and enjoy working on your bike. Getting to the cylinder heads is the first step in the process. DISASSEMBLY Secure the bike to a stand or a lift. Take pictures of everything, especially electrical connections and routing of leads, hoses, etc. to aid in reassembly. Use a paint pen or other marking device to make alignment marks (i.e.-oil pressure sensor connection) for reassembly purposes. Remove the side fairings Disconnect the battery (the battery negative terminal is the first removed and the last installed) Remove enough interference to gain access to the cylinder heads. This may include the fuel tank/seat cowling assembly, the air-box, and radiator. Get a picture of cooling fan connections (both sides). Place a catch pan underneath the radiator hoses to catch the fluid during removal Remove coil Remove the spark plugs Remove the rocker cover Remove the timing belt covers: Undo the bolts securing the vertical timing belt cover and remove it from the vertical cylinder assembly. Some finesse may be required as this is a tight fit in the frame. Undo the bolts securing the timing belt cover and remove it from the horizontal cylinder unit. Remove the spark plugs. This is important: the engine will not rotate with the spark plugs installed. The engine will have to be rotated during valve adjustment/belt replacement and is made easier with the removal of the spark plugs.

How To Change Blown Fuse Or Reset Circuit Breaker Because the "blowing" of a fuse results from the overloading of an electrical circuit, many people think that the fuse box is a dangerous area to approach, as it controls the flow of so much electricity. Nothing could be further from the truth. Of course, it is always advisable to approach electrical apparatus with caution; but there should be no fear whatsoever attached to the common chore of changing a burnt fuse. We would, however, like to give you a few pointers before we begin the actual procedure for that simple task. As far as fuses are concerned, the cardinal rule is Be Prepared. That is to say, you should make a list of all the different types and sizes of fuse in your fuse box, and make sure you have three or four of each on hand at all times. Because, if one "blows" on Sunday, you'll be whistling in the dark till Monday. Now, if you really want to be secure when working around your fuse box, take our humbly, offered advice, and make the following chart: 1. Make a diagram of your fuse or circuit breaker box, as shown in Figure 54A. 2. Number each fuse or circuit breaker, both on the chart and beside each in the box, making sure that your numbers correspond exactly with one another. 3. Turn on all the lights in your apartment or house. 4. Now, one at a time, unscrew each fuse or trip circuit breaker and see which lights go off. 5. Mark down beside each fuse or circuit breaker in your chart the area of the house or apartment each controls See Figure 54B. 6. Once you have completed this, tape your chart beside the box in plain site. 7. From then on, if the power fails in your bedroom, say, you will know exactly which fuse or circuit breaker has disconnected and must be corrected by consultining the chart.

Prostate Cancer, Bone Metastases, and Treatment-Related Osteoporosis A Publication of The Bone and Cancer Foundation General Information about Prostate Cancer 1. Q. What is prostate cancer? A. Prostate cancer is an abnormal (malignant) growth of the prostate, a walnut-sized gland at the base of the urinary bladder in men. 2. Q. How common is prostate cancer? A. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men (except for skin cancer) and a leading cause of cancer death worldwide. In 2007, close to 218,890 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 27,050 men will die from prostate cancer in the U.S. 3. Q. How is prostate cancer diagnosed? A. Prostate cancer is most often diagnosed by needle biopsy of the prostate gland. Biopsies are usually advised for men found to have either an abnormal digital rectal exam (DRE) or elevated PSA blood level. (The medical term for PSA is prostate-specific antigen.) Some, but not all men with an abnormal DRE or PSA have prostate cancer. Digital rectal exam (DRE) — is a procedure in which a gloved finger is put into the rectum to check the prostate gland. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) — is a protein produced by the prostate gland. Its level goes up in the blood of some men who have prostate cancer. It can also go up with other conditions that affect the prostate. These include infections (prostatitis) and a non-cancerous growth that comes with aging, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). 4. Q. What are the risk factors for prostate cancer? A. Risk for prostate cancer increases with age. More than 90% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer are older than 50 years. African-American men have a higher risk for prostate cancer than men of other races. A family history of prostate cancer increases prostate cancer risk. About 10% of prostate cancers appear to run in families although little is known about how or why this happens. Some environmental factors, including high intake of dietary fat, appear to increase prostate cancer risk. 5. Q. How is early-stage prostate cancer treated? A. There are several treatment choices for men with early-stage prostate cancer (tumors that appear confined to the prostate gland): Prostatectomy: surgical removal of the prostate gland. ...
Optimal Implementation of On-Line Optimization Xueyu Chen1, Ralph W. Pike1, Thomas A. Hertwig 2 and Jack R. Hopper3 1. Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 USA, 2. IMC Agrico Company, Convent, LA 70822 USA, 3. Lamar University, Beaumont, TX 77710 USA Abstract Results from a theoretical and numerical evaluation of on-line optimization algorithms were used to recommend the best way to conduct on-line optimization. This optimal procedure conducts combined gross error detection and data reconciliation to detect and rectify gross errors in plant data sampled from the distributed control system. The Tjoa-Biegler method (the contaminated Gaussian distribution) was used for gross errors in the range of 3σ - 30σ or the robust method (Lorentzian distribution) for larger gross errors. This step generates a set of measurements containing only random errors which is used for simultaneous data reconciliation and parameter estimation using the least squares method. Updated parameters are used in the plant model for economic optimization that generates optimal set points for the distributed control system. Applying this procedure to a Monsanto sulfuric acid contact plant, a 3% increase in profit and a 10% reduction in SO2 emissions were projected over current operating condition which is consistent with other reported applications.
