Shibaura N844T Engine Block Rebuild

Engine Block Rebuild

Below is a Shibaura N844T engine block out of a Gehl L170 skidsteer. It started to act sluggish but the customer kept running it, after another 40-50 hrs of running “sluggish” it broke the crank shaft and threw 2 piston rods through the side of the block. If they would have pulled it out when they noticed it running bad it could have been preventable.

To purchase a new Shibauru N844T engine kit would have cost the customer close to a thousand dollars, but by bringing the engine into Automotive Machine Works they were able to get back up and running at a lesser cost.
