Here at Mazworx, we can prep your block to your specifications. Utilizing our CNC capabilities and state-of-the-art equipment, you can ensure that the machining process is done properly. For more understanding of our process, see the additional information section.
Each prepped block will include the following:
- Hot tank cleaning
- Sand Blast and Paint Block
- R/R Oil Port Plugs
- Mazworx Threaded Freeze Plugs
- Bore & Hone with Torque Plate
- ARP Main Studs
- Mazworx Billet Main Caps
If you plan on sending in your block, we will wait for your block to show up before work is started. If you don't have a block and want to purchase a core, then please select the type of block you want.
Select the bore size you wish.
Our boring process is done on a 3-axis CNC machine ensuring bores are on center. From there it goes to the honing machine. We have the latest Sunnen SV-10 cylinder hone with diamond tooling. This is for the ultimate in cylinder finishing.
This process is done using a coated CBN cutter.
Main Studs/Caps and Line Bore:
Our line boring starts with a simple cap grinding. From there it goes into our line boring machine. With our custom tooling, we can bore the main journals within the factory specifications with ease.
We will paint the outside of your block with semi-gloss paint.
R/R Oil Port Plugs:
This process includes removing and re-tapping all the oil port plugs. By taking out the oil port plugs, we are better able to clean all the oil galleys. Plugs are included but not re-installed.
Hone with Torque Plate:
We make all of our torque plates for just about every block we work on. Using a torque plate simulates a cylinder head being bolted on during the honing process. When the motor is actually put back together, the cylinder is as true as it was while in the honing machine. Using the torque plate is a must with sleeves install. It is an option on stock sleeve blocks.
1/2" Head Stud Machining:
If you plan on making over 1500hp, then we suggest going with 1/2" head studs. In this process we drill out the old threads and re-tap them for our 1/2" head stud kit. We also re-machine the dowel pin locations for the bigger dowels.
This process is done on our 3-axis CNC machine.
