Need an engine machined or custom built?
We are a full engine machine shop with over 35 years of combined experience in engine building.
JTR Precision Engines is located in Craig, CO just East of the KOA campground on East Highway 40 and we are ready to meet your engine building and machining needs today!
Our engines are built with some of the highest quality components and machining precision available today. We use a profilometer to measure our surfacing roughness average (ra) when machining your components instead of guessing or visually comparing like many shops do. New multi layer steel (MLS) gaskets require a very smooth surface, about 10-30 ra depending on the combination of iron and aluminum components and application. If using older generation gaskets the surface needs to be a little rougher than MLS gaskets to stay sealed. It is virtually impossible to visually tell the difference of 60 ra and 30 ra, let alone 10 ra without an accurate measuring system. What this means for you is a cylinder head gasket that may last for 150,000 miles instead of only 15,000 miles. A surface that is too rough will cause gasket tearing as the parts shift and move around. Our CBN and PCD insert type surfacing machine is capable of any roughness average that may be needed.
We build and machine engines of all types whether it is Diesel, Stock, Classic, Performance, or Racing, we do them all. Our engines and cylinder heads are assembled in our dedicated clean assembly room.
We also sell performance engine components and accessories for your next project. Stop in to see our selection in stock today! Commercial accounts are welcome, we are ready to take care of your busy schedule.
