Engines tell stories. They tell stories by how they run and what type of wear that they have. That being said, you need to be able to read the story to understand what the engine is telling you and in this MAHLE Piston Tech video we learn about piston skirt wear and what the different types tell us about our engine. All engines have wear, right? It is determining whether the wear is normal or not that makes a big difference.
These MAHLE videos are cool because they are informative for those of you out there who may be embarking on your first engine build or tear down and they have enough meat on their bones to keep the guys who have been doing this forever interested and informed. These are not sales pitches as to why you should be buying only MAHLE products, they are informational and educational, hosted by engineers not human microphone stands.
Check this video out, it’ll be four of the best minutes of your day, especially if you have been lacking gearhead talk on this Monday and you need some good old fashioned engine speak in your life. Bring it!
