This month we look at a Hino EM100 engine being reconditioned. This particular engine had a very large external crack running between welch plugs. The crack repair process utilised state of the art Cast Master repair plugs. The cost of the crack repair was around $800.00, the cost of a new Hino block was approximately 10 times more.
