Perkins repair sleeveA new line of repair sleeves from Perkins Engines, Seguin, Texas, is designed to extend the life and restore the performance of the 1100 Series engines. Available worldwide, the sleeves allow technicians to restore individual cylinders to their factory dimensions, allowing the original, standard-sized pistons to be retained and maintaining proper engine balance, according to the company. The repair sleeves are composed of the same material as the engine block to match the wear, thermal and machining characteristics. The Perkins 1100 Series engines are used on applications such as tractors, chippers, grinders and other off-highway equipment, small generator sets and small marine propulsion systems.
