Is your #Powerstroke or #Duramax having issues? Is your #Cummins rolling too much coal? Maybe you’re tired of dealing with fly by night mechanics who wont give you straight answers.

In this episode of ‘Questions and Answers with Cass’ , get some straight talk and some direct answers to your biggest worries. He is a well known genius when it comes to the world of diesel, so let him help you with your problems.

John’s 6.0 powerstroke lifter failed, and now he’s buying an engine. But why did it fail?

We ran across a new bearing issue building a new engine! This could have caused catastrophic failure in the engine if this wasn’t caught by our quality control. Let US do you machine work for you if you’re going to build an engine the right way !!

What’s needed for a 6.0L to reliably hold power? How to stop high-pressure oil leaks? What’s the best engine? Do emission-equipped diesel not last as long?

On this episode of Questions with Cass we had a few guys from instagram and Facebook ask questions about their Duramax, 6.4s and machining questions for diesels and their blocks AND MORE! We Also talk about the importance of our Delipped Coated and Flycut Pistons as well which can be found on our website below.

We are discussing the Roational Assembly failures. A failed connecting rod is easy to discover, but what about:
1. Bearings Issues
2.Clearances Issues
2. Crankshaft Issues

Is it Installation errors?

Be careful when building your building your own engine. If you do this is a MUST LISTEN!
You can find all the products in the website listed.

No matter if it’s a Cummins, Duramax or Powerstroke, failed head gaskets can be an issue. And, getting the most out of airflow factors into your high performance build.
