Precision's New Brochure Tells How To Cut Costs On Diesel Maintenance

Precision National Corporation, the firm which has been saving many dollars for diesel engine operators by restoring bent, worn and damaged crankshafts to likenew condition, can now provide the same repair service for big cylinder liners.

The firm has constructed a special building in Waco, Texas, to house a giant hone that will accommodate diesel cylinder liners up to 36-inch inside diameter, and up to 111 inches long. While this hone is a big factor in Precision's new capability, the key to the successful restoring of cylinder liners to like-new condition is Precision's exclusive Permachrome® hard chrome plating over the inner surface of each liner. The Permachrome process involves the uniform deposition of the plating and the proper amount of porosity to give long-wearing characteristics.

Precision's engineers state that the firm's giant crankshaft grinder is the only one of its kind in America. It can handle crankshafts 30 feet long, with 80-inch throw.

Precision also has the capability for remanufacturing, hard chrome plating, honing and/or grinding large rolls, globe and gate valves, marine propeller shafts, etc., and returning them to original tolerances for like-new operation.

For a copy of the firm's new brochure which describes these capabilities, write to Ray Jenkins, Precision National Corporation, P.O. Box 789, Mount Vernon, 111.
