Boring and Honing

REMOVE THE WEAR FOR A LONGER LIFESPAN

Using our vertical boring equipment, we can machine a cylinder block and re-size a bore to take the next available piston size. Even if a cylinder is too damaged to be bored we can still reclaim it by sleeving the cylinder with a new liner. Once boring is complete, the cylinder is finish-honed to create the optimum surface finish before being plateau-honed to create a surface that will aid the running-in process for the new piston rings. Our engineers are also able to reclaim conrods by honing big ends and small ends – or reclaim main lines or main bearing housings through line honing or line boring.
