Just thought I would show the process of fitting heavy metal to a crankshaft. First the crank is drilled and then ream to size. The heavy metal is pressed into the web. And Bob's your uncle we away.

A pair of V8 Pontiac heads with the exhaust manifold facer needing some love. We welded up and remachined and all done in house. As you can see back to new.

She looks a bit weird and dangerous but we balance all sort of agricultural equipment. If it rotates we can do it. Engine rotating assemblies and even EV engines . Big or small we do it all!

Here's a 65 Mustang we finished last month. We fully rebuilt the tired 289ci V8 and while we did that we had the engine bay painted, the wiring tidied up all making the engine look as good as it runs now.

Just to show the importance of machining your brake rotors. They might look alright as you can see in the first photo, but as we machine the rotor you can see how out of shape they are.

An update on the LSA engine. Santa Claus arrived with lots of new goodies!! We have honed and decked the block, fitted new cam bearings. As you can see we have a brand new rotating assembly and nice shiny new forged pistons.

27/01/2019

Do you own a late model diesel?? Losing a bit of power?? Won't pull the skin off a rice pudding?? This is why!! This is the way the manifolds come into us completely blocked. This is why your engine has no performance but we CAN FIX IT!!
