If we recondition a piston skirt, then we carry out the following works:

  • Thorough inspection and measurement
  • NDT crack testing
  • Removing the old bandages
  • Rolling in of new bandages and milling of the expansion slots
  • Skimming of the mating surfaces to remove fretting corrosion, if any is present
  • Final machining of the bandages on a vertical lathe machine
