Crankshaft Regrinding

Many older British and European motor cycle manufacturers offered undersize bearings to allow for reclaiming worn or damaged crankshafts by re-grinding.  Where bearings are still available H T Howard can regrind your motorcycle crankshaft using exactly the same machinery and techniques as for any other engine.

We regularly machine crankshafts for older generation Triumph, BSA, AJS/Matchless and Norton motorcycles as well as some from European manufacturers such as BMW and Moto-Guzzi.

Unfortunately, motorcycles of Japanese origin tend not to have undersize bearings available and so generally cannot be reground.

Sludge Trap Removal and Cleaning

Where fitted, it is always good practice to remove and clean all sludge traps and oil gallery plugs to ensure the correct oil flow is achieved following the rebuild of any engine.  This will avoid any likelihood of premature failure due to blockages and ensure that oil pressure is maintained at the correct level.

If you entrust this work to H T Howard we will make sure that everything is fully cleaned before returning the crankshaft to you.
