The primary source of content that appears on the Crankshaft Repair website originates from an ASE certified engine machinist named Bill. Having been an automotive machinist for over twenty five years, Bill’s knowledge of both stock and performance crankshaft repairs is an invaluable asset to automotive enthusiasts around the country. In addition to straightening, grinding and welding crankshafts, Bill has also knife-edged and cross-drilled crankshafts for racing applications.
In his many years as an engine machinist, Bill has been employed at a number of leading automotive machine shops. He has operated equipment manufactured by Berco, RMC and many others. This machinery, when properly maintained, enables machinists the opportunity to perform repairs that hold tolerances within .0001”.
Though Bill has a great deal of experience with crankshaft repairs, he has also reconditioned engine blocks, cylinder heads and connecting rods. Since all of these components must maintain close tolerances, they are all important components that make up the internal combustion engine. This vast amount of knowledge has earned Bill a solid reputation among other automotive professionals and vehicle owners.
