Line Boring Main Housing’s

Here at Statfold Engineering Ltd we can offer a wide range of boring capabilities including line boring. When line boring the main housing on a cylinder block is important to remember when dealing with any bearing housing which features individual half of its diameter in the main casting and one half in an unconnected cap. They will be constructed as a matched pair from the manufacturer. In no situation, should they be mixed up, switched, or tuned around from their original location within the engine. At Statfold engineering we always mark bearing caps for both place and location in the cylinder block, we do the same when it comes to working with connecting rods and their related caps.

We can also offer camshaft line boring. The line boring effectively restores both the sizing and alignment of these housings so that the rotating components (camshaft or crankshaft), can turn freely.
