We also perform upper and lower refits, re-sleeving, lifter bore replacements, and specialty repairs and updates on blocks. Whether it’s working on an Arrow single-cylinder or up to the 3600 Series of diesel engines from Caterpillar (and everything else in-between) we have the largest equipment capacity available for our diesel and natural gas engine customers.
Our Block Department is equipped with the newest line of boring mills from Rottler. The Rottler F68A, F99Y, F105A, and F109 are some of the impressive CNC equipment that provides the precision and highest quality finish possible. The latest addition to the fleet is the Rottler F109. This is the largest engine block boring mill of its kind available today and employs a unique Right Angle Drive configuration for accomplishing unequalled results when align boring the main bearings on the largest blocks.
The 109’s capacity also allows for the resurfacing of almost all of the natural gas engine decks in use with just one pass, eliminating problems associated with moving and realigning the engine block to complete the job using conventional boring mills. This also applies to the oil pan rails and the compressor beds for larger engines. Another feature is 3-axis computerized machining for tasks such as the water directors on the engine block deck and other modifications and upgrades that become available.
