TRAC's Con Rod Department is responsible for machining and reconditioning connecting rods of all sizes from diesel and natural gas engines. The rods go through a rigorous examination process to determine their re-usability, sizing and straightness. Those that pass this scrutiny receive new bushings that are then cut to size, providing a smooth surface ready to return to its application.

Don't risk further damage. Contact the team at TRAC Engine Services Ltd to have your connecting rods reconditioned, it is a crucial step when rebuilding an engine!
