Overhaul Your Engine with RPM Diesel
With help from the professional diesel mechanics at RPM Diesel, you can overhaul your engine. This is just one of the many services we offer here for marine vessels at RPm diesel. For over half a century, 64 years to be exact, we have been building a reputation as being the best most professional diesel shop on the east coast f the united states. That’s right, we have been working with diesel engines since 1956! Powering any marine vessel, or boat is a diesel engine- similar to those also found in diesel trucks but built for boats. These machines by their very nature are inclined to be self-damaging and succumb to breakdowns, especially if not maintained properly. Much of the wear and tear on an engine can be mitigated by committing to a regular maintenance schedule with a certified, trusted diesel shop. However, by nature, no engine lasts forever and eventually may need to be pulled out, and drastically reworked or upgraded in order to continue operating at all. These upgrades are referred to as an “engine overhaul” and are one of the more advanced services we perform at RPM diesel. Read on to learn more about this service, and why we think you should consider it if you own a marine vessel!
The main reasons to get an engine overhaul on your boat are:
- Improved fuel efficiency!
- Increased engine performance!
- Cheaper than a full replacement!
- Critical Component Failure
Wear and tear is ultimately the main reason behind all this, combustion engines are built to contain violent explosions that. Over time, diesel engines suffer from hours of use and will begin to falter in performance, particularly in the categories mentioned above. Rather than spending a small fortune during the process of an overhaul, your engine is taken apart and every component cleaned. Next, an assessment of wear and tear is made on the newly cleaned engine. at this time components that have reached their limit should be replaced with new ones. This kind of service is complex and time-consuming, and if you choose to do an overhaul know that its best to take care of every single replacement part at once for cost-effectiveness. Some of the overhaul processes might include:
- Governor rebuild
- Pressure testing of the Water Jacket
- Cylinder head valve, seat grinding, and rebuild
- Valve cam grinding
