Highway and Heavy Parts (HHP) is pleased to announce the latest addition to their diesel engine parts "Tech Tip" series. This month’s topic will cover the benefits and drawbacks to reusing pistons.
Rebuilding an engine on a class eight truck is a costly procedure. Depending on how extensive the repairs, the parts alone can range from fifteen hundred to fifteen thousand. One option for reducing the cost of an engine overhaul rebuild is to reuse the pistons. The pistons are typically the single most expensive part in a rebuild kit. Taking them out can make the kit affordable for nearly everyone’s budget. HHP covers in their tech tip the various reasons why or why not this may be a viable option.
