Precision Machine Work & Custom Engines
We have experience in engines dating from the 1920s to slant 6 Chryslers and late-model LS and LT Chevy engines. We also perform light-duty diesel engine repair including Duramax, Cummins and Powerstroke.
Cylinder Head Service
We adapt to new technology needed for today’s cylinder heads, including aluminum head repair. We check cast and aluminum heads before and after repair. We give new heads the smooth finish required by manufacturers.
The crankshaft is the foundation to a long-lasting engine. Crankshafts are cleaned and then shot-peened prior to any machine work. Crankshaft journals and fillet radius are ground within manufacturer’s specifications and micro-polished.
Engine builds using, after-market components, such as a crank that differs from rods and/or pistons, then it’s important to balance your engine. This process manipulates the crankshaft mass in the counterweights and allows the rotating and reciprocating forces to be balanced by machining the crank.
We clean, visually inspect, and magnafix/pressure test them before performing any machine work. Blocks are then machined accordingly by boring, decking, torque plate honing and align hone/align bore.
Connecting Rod Operations
Using only the best equipment, we break down our labor operations for rod work according to time required.
