Questions abut the Jumo 004 engine

Postby Avalancheon » 05 May 2017 09:35

When the Jumo 004B-1 engine went into production in june 1943, it was plagued with vibration problems that weren't solved until early 1944. And even then, its service life only averaged about 10 hours. According to Alfred Price, it wasn't until august of 1944 that running time increased to 20-25 hours.

Does anyone know what changes were made to the Jumo 004B-1 engine which increased its service life?
