With careful and thorough engine maintenance after each night of racing, dirt cars require engine rebuilding after an average of 10-20 shows. That process will include head reconditioning, block honing and replacing parts such as pistons, rings, gaskets, bearings, roller lifters and valve springs.
Oil pumps are disassembled, cleaned and inspected. Mag rebuilds may be necessary and flow testing may indicate the need for fuel pump rebuild. Cranks are magnafluxed and polished. Rods are magnafluxed and reconditioned and blocks are hot pressure tested to inspect for any cracks. Every engine undergoes “break-in” and is Dyno tested.
Rebuilding an engine requires personnel skilled in each specialty area and Kistler Engines provides that expertise with Paul’s 24 years in engine building and his employee’s combined 55+ years building dependable, highly competitive engines.
