How do you know when your cylinder needs to be re-Nikasiled? Some times its not that easy to tell, but usually you can tell by looking at the cylinder walls. If you can see scratches or chips that's a sure indication that it's time to have your cylinder re-plated. If you can't see any wear or damage that doesn't necessarily mean your cylinder is in good condition. The inside of the cylinder has to be exactly round ( with-in specs) to perform properly. This can only be accurately checked with a dial bore gauge, it can measure to with-in one ten thousandths of an inch. The Nikasil plating that's on the walls of your cylinder is only a few thousandths of an inch thick but it is very hard. It wears extremely well as long as everything is tight and sanitary. If you maintain your engine as the factory recommends it will last for years. However we all know how easy it is to suck it full of water or dirt or maybe run it low on oil or some other mistake. The Nikasil plating, or coating as its sometimes refereed to, will have to be stripped and the cylinder re-plated.
We can repair any Nikasil cylinder or Chrome plated cylinder. Even extremely damaged ones. The Nikasil will be repaired by stripping all the old plating and inspecting the casting for flaws that require welding or possibly skim boring. It is then plated and diamond honed to original size and fitted to a new piston. Our years of experience with cylinder rebuilding assures you that you'll have the finest repair, better than NEW.
