When you've been collecting tools, parts, information,
and equipment for over fifty years it's tough to make a list
of it all. Suffice it to say that the collection is extensive.
Because of this we've been able to tackle some challenging projects.
Servicing and testing governors, single plunger pumps, unit
injectors and many of the other devices that run diesels and
turbines requires some specialized equipment. Ever heard of
an "atom-smasher?" No, it's not from Los Alamos Laboratory,
it's a test bench for running big single plunger pumps for ship
and powerplant engines. Ours handles pumps that deliver about
a shot-glass of fuel per stroke. It gets its name from the rhythmic
thumping it produces driving those units. Woodward governors,
Detroit Diesel, Cummins and other unique designs all require
special equipment found at East Coast Diesel Service. As we
said, it's hard to make a list but you get the idea.
We acquired a machine shop to enable us a more
flexible approach to meeting our customer's needs. Being able
to salvage a part that would normally have to be replaced, make
a fixture for less than the manufacturer charges, or make adapters
to service products that were orphaned by their maker helps
us to hold costs down and offer our customers options. As an
example, the fixtures to attach the big orange Waukesha pump
(pictured on this site) to that test bench didn't exist until
we made them.
So whether your service need is a current, popular
item, or something unique, contact
us. Other fuel injection shops looking for old, unusual
or obsolete parts should contact us too. After fifty plus years
we've collected some interesting pieces.
