Client Study: The Scottish Vintage Bus Museum
A vintage transport museum was hiring out one of its exhibits, but the pre-release inspection revealed a knocking from the bottom end. The cylinder block was brought to our workshop for further inspection. We measured the bores and discovered they were excessively worn and had reached their maximum oversize, too large for any available pistons. On consulting our vast database of information on these engines, we discovered that liners could be fitted to restore the bores to standard size. We sourced the liners and pistons and proceeded to bore the block out to the required dimensions. We finished by adjusting and honing the bores to the precise requirements of the pistons, ensuring the correct clearance.
