ATLANTA, GA, May 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Perkins diesel engine specialists, APM Heavy Duty, carry a complete line of Cummins crankshafts in addition to many other diesel components for their customers' needs. If you are building a new engine from scratch or are in the process of a existing rebuild, the right crankshaft will make all the difference.
This is the part of the motor that transfers the force generated in the cylinders to the wheels. Without one, all the energy created by the pistons would be a complete waste, and your car or truck would be left sitting idle.
Choosing Your Crankshaft
As the name suggests, a crankshaft cranks over and over as the pistons subsequently move up and down. This process must be properly synced in order for successful energy transfer to occur. An incorrectly sized crankshaft will not get the job done, and different crankshaft materials have different effects on engine performance. One of the main differences between crankshafts in street vs. stock-build motors is the that the former are comprised of cast iron that has undergone magnaflux testing (removal of surface imperfections).
The John Deere engine parts experts specialize in the sale of Cummins crankshafts, including ones applicable for 3.9, 5.9 and 8.3L motors.
According to David Debuc, Vice President of APM Engine Parts, "We strongly encourage our customers to research which crankshaft size and type they need, but our staff is here to help with any questions and to offer recommendations for any engine build."
