Align Boring and Honing

Do you have a cylinder block with damaged main bearing bores?

Are you building a high performance engine and want optimum crankshaft alignment and clearances?

You may want to consider getting the block align bored and honed.

We can save blocks that would otherwise need to be discarded. In regards to high horsepower engines, align boring and honing is a must.

Many customers believe that align boring and honing is a step that you can skip to save a few bucks in the machining budget, we disagree. Tolerances are very tight in these areas and if you are out of specs far enough where you have metal on metal contact, the engine will fail in no time.

Cylinder Boring and Honing

Do you have a cylinder block with worn out or damaged bores?

Boring out a block to accept oversize pistons, install a sleeve, to salvage an old core or even to increase displacement is a regular operation in our machine shop.

We can bore cylinders from 2-7/8 inches to 8 inches.

Cylinder Honing is a machine shop process that takes place after boring in which the cylinders are finish sized and finely polished to a precise size, bore geometry and ring seal finish.

Today's engines require straight and round cylinders with the proper cylinder wall finish so that the rings don't wear too much or carry too much oil.
