Five Points on Selecting a Company for Cylinder Head Skimming Services

Posted by jacknicholson on April 13th, 2016

This article has been written to provide an overview of cylinder head skimming and how to choose a company for cylinder head skimming services.

Cylinder head skimming is a method applied for refacing the mating surface of the head. Sometimes, this method is called ‘fly cutting’ that ropes in mounting the cylinder head on a milling machine, which has a fixed head and a moving table. And the milling head has a bespoke attachment with a cutter spinning at round 600 RPM. This method is the most accurate way of resurfacing a cylinder head.

Some people also refer cylinder head skimming as cylinder head machining. No matter, what term you go with, the process is identical. These days, most engines, but not all, have a cylinder head gasket sandwiched between the head and the block. Over a period of time, overheating and corrosion make heads slightly twisted, dished, or damaged. In some cases, cylinder liners damage the heads. Most of these faults can be tackled by refacing and mating; badly corroded heads may need to be welded before they are machined.

Needless to say, most of the cylinder heads come with combustion chambers and skim operation reduces in-volume of the combustion. So it increases in compression ratio, offering an added bonus of increasing power and fuel efficiency. When it comes to choosing a company for cylinder head skimming services, you should consider some points, which are mentioned below:

  • You should always look for a company that offers a quick turnaround time. Some companies offer while-you-wait service as well. Usually, diesel engine heads require a little longer time.

  • Cylinder head skimming services should not make a big hole in your pocket. You should be able to get this service in around £40 plus vat.

  • The company should provide you with comprehensive welding and skimming service

  • Make sure the company you are going to choose removes minimum material unless there is a need of more.

  • The company you are going to choose for cylinder head skimming service should be able to offer you increased compression ratio.

If you follow these points, you will be able to search for a reputed company for the cylinder head resurfacing. Some companies offer resurfacing service for engine blocks as well. So if you require resurfacing and machining of your car’s engine, you should look for one such company. It is advisable that you must read testimonials about the company you are going to go with.
