Why wait to get your crankshaft checked
Posted on 27 February 2018

Getting your crankshaft inspected or ground in Perth can be a difficult thing to do. Why should you or your the customer wait, when you want to know yesterday well that’s why we are here  

We have 2 crankshaft grinding Machines at Noordeman Diesel which allows us to do twice as many cranks and also allows us to do nearly everything from a single cylinder engine upto mutli cylinder engines upto 2.6meters long and we have 3 experienced crank grinders who know how to use these machines

 All crankshafts need to be crack tested.  Some experienced crankshaft grinders like us also own a lectro magna flux crack tester. No just a white paint can with black ink

Basically the lectro magna flux crack tester magnetises the crankshaft and then special fluid is poured over the crankshaft. If a crack is present it will attract the crack testing fluid particle and under a special light the crack is identified under a fluorescent light

Some cracks can be ground out, some will make the crankshaft UN serviceable. Some are also ok to leave… if you are unsure just bring your crankshaft in and we can crack test your crankshaft and let you know if it needs a grind or a polish.

We can repair the nose of the crankshaft if its damaged, metal spray an oil seal area just check out our Facebook page

If it’s out of your sports car, high performance crank, old vintage collection, your land cruiser, large earthmoving piece of gear a crankshaft is a crankshaft.

So lets get cranked and bring it in before you throw a rod with frustration
