OUR MACHINING SERVICES
Engine Rotating Assembly Balancing
Whether you’re building a mild stock engine, a high-revving performance engine, or a slow-turning heavy-duty diesel engine, the importance of a quality, precise balancing job is key. Balancing greatly improves bearing life as it drastically reduces side loads.
Engine balancing will also leave you with a smooth running engine with minimal vibration, ensuring a long, trouble free service life.
Flywheel Resurfacing & Balancing
Flywheels can obtain targeted areas of wear due to the excessive friction and heat over time. This can cause vibration whenever the Flywheel engages and when the vehicle accelerates. In order to prevent issues directly after installing a new clutch and later down the line, it’s important to get the Flywheel resurfaced regularly.
This process requires the machining of a precise groove cut into the surface of the head and the installation of a stainless steel o-ring. The o-ring adds a secondary seal to the head gasket at the fire ring area, which can absorb warpage and still maintain a compression seal.
We offer precision connecting rod machining and reconditioning services. We have the equipment to work on connecting rods of all sizes from diesel and natural gas engines. A rigorous examination process is performed to determine their re-usability, sizing and straightness. We then apply new bushings that are cut to size, providing a smooth surface ready to return to its application.
Sleeves can be used to restore a particular bore size to to like-new dimensions if a cylinder has been too badly worn or damaged.
