Engine Blocks

Engine Block machining & preperation for Standard engines, Street and Strip performance & Purpose built Racing engines. Precision machining of petrol & diesel engine blocks using modern Rottler and Sunnen boring & honing equipment. Line boring and line honing is available to straighten and accurately size the main tunnel to provide a bearing surface that will ensure optimum bearing crush & heat transfer for cooler, longer lasting bearings. Cylinder blocks are indexed from the pan rails on In-line blocks & the pan rails & main bearing tunnel on 60° & 90° V-blocks for total machining accuracy. Cylinder sizing & surface finish meet or exceed specifications required by piston ring manufacturers to ensure proper bed in & minimise oil consumption. Special bore finish is used on all High Performance Racing Engines requiring Torque plates & Plateau honed finish.
