SCRATCHES vs. GOUGES: Scratched cylinder walls do not have to be the end of your engine. We can rebore, NiCom® plate them to build them up, and hone them down to final size. The finished cylinder wall is harder than the original, and will last longer. Cylinder wall scratches 0.10" inch deep or less will be removed by this boring, plating and honing process. Scratches deeper than .010" are considered "gouges" and they are too deep to remove. In this case, we recommend boring to fit the next over-sized stock or after-market piston. The process is the same after that.

WHAT IT IS: NiCom® is an electroplated nickel matrix with silicon carbide particles uniformly dispersed throughout. The carbide is extremely hard, but not abrasive because of its minute particle size, which averages two microns. The inclusion of these dense ceramic particles raises the hardness of the composite and provides unique properties, particularly when plated on aluminum. NiCom® has been found to be so effective that leading manufacturers (General Motors, Mercury, Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, and others - see pictures below) are now using it on new cylinders as well as repairs.
