Side housing re-surfacing is highly recommended when rebuilding your engine, if the extent of wear permits. Our in-house resurfacing process utilizes a lapping table and an optical grade polishing compound to produce a surface finish that exceeds even the factory finish. The superiority of this lapping process well exceeds what is generally available through surface grinding operations.
