Counterbore Cutting Services

Revitalize Your Engine with Counterbore Cutting

Your truck is more than just a vehicle; it's an investment, a symbol of your hard work, and a crucial part of your livelihood. Over time, though, damage between the cylinder liner and block can cause head gasket failures. This damage could lead you to consider replacing the entire engine block, but that's often expensive. Instead, you could consider a procedure called counterbore cutting, which is a more economical way to repair your engine.

Counterbore cutting is a method used to remove the damaged parts of the deck and cylinder. This creates a flat, new surface for the liner. By installing a specially made sleeve or 'shim,' we bring back the correct height of the liner compared to the block's deck surface. This method helps stop leaks and keeps your engine running strong, extending its life.

But keep in mind counterbore cutting does have some limitations. For example, there's a restriction on how much material can be safely removed from the cylinder block. Plus, due to the changes this procedure can make to your engine's structure, you might need some extra modifications or new parts. And even though it's generally quicker than replacing the engine block, there's still some downtime. Nevertheless, counterbore cutting is a cost-effective way to revitalize your engine and reduce expenses.
