Check Engine


The crankshaft is a mechanical device which, by means of a connecting rod, transforms the rectilinear movement of the piston into a continuous rotational movement, and vice versa. The crankshaft transmits the energy from the explosions in the combustion chambers to the gearbox, making it the central part of an engine, the heart of the beast!

Before any engine repair, it’s essential to check the crankshaft for wear and tear at the crankpins using metrology, and to carry out a magnetic particle scan, which is a sort of X-ray of the crankshaft to detect cracks invisible to the naked eye. In the event of a problem, it will always be possible to straighten the crankshaft or rectify it if necessary.
