Midland, MI (PRWEB) July 25, 2013 -- Highway and Heavy Parts (HHP) is pleased to announce its latest addition to their diesel engine parts tech tip series. The latest addition will cover buying options for cylinder heads in the heavy diesel industry.
HHP tech series is an ongoing project to help answer common questions and problems in the diesel engine parts industry. Each month they choose a frequently asked question that the parts department has received by their customers. The chosen topic is then addressed in their blog and will hopefully help any others that are running into the same issue.
This month, the topic covers the differences between rebuilt and remanufactured cylinder heads. Many times the two terms for cylinder heads are used interchangeably and this leads to confusion on what customers are actually getting for their money. HHP has highlighted the differences in the heads as well as what some of the positive and negative features that each may have. HHP has noticed a sharp increase in cylinder head sales on the first life rebuild of all the major manufactures. They believe this can be attributed to several factors. The most prominent being that owner/operators as well as fleets are holding onto trucks longer, thus they need more attention at the time of rebuild. They also report that the intention of both owner/operators as well as fleets is to keep their trucks longer to help lower overhead costs.
Highway and Heavy Parts inventories cylinder heads for all the major engine manufacturers such as: Cummins, Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel and International. This greatly helps with their product knowledge and getting to the bottom of customer issues. The parts staff has a great deal of hands on experience also, each having worked with diesel engine parts for a number of years.
Highway and Heavy Parts will continue to update their tech blog with interesting issues that present themselves as they deal with diesel engine parts issues. They urge everyone to check it out and leave feedback so they can better serve the diesel market.
