Celebrating its 70th year as a supplier to engine and machine shops around the world, Goodson is showcasing not only hot-selling products but the technical expertise of its customer representative.
“People come to us with problems,” says Goodson’s Dave Monyhan. “All of our advisors have extensive technical experience.”
Whether it’s providing advice to engine builders working with critical components like titanium valves or offering tools that do very simple operations quickly, Goodson can help a shop improve efficiency.
“There’s a lot of little things that save time,” adds Monyhan.
Take for example Goodson’s magnetic removal tools that can pick up washers and valve-spring shims. These are especially useful when the engine is hot and you’re working with gloves, or when an oil film keeps a shim sticking to the head.
Goodson has an extensive line of valve guide tools, whether for installation, repair or honing. The company’s Hyper-Finish Diamond sizing hone is one of the useful tools due to its wide range of operation and ease of use. Another popular tool on display at the PRI show was the piston-ring sizing tool that allows the builder to set it once and then cut multiple rings to the desired gap.
Other Goodson products cover cylinder head rebuilding, parts cleaning, measuring and assembly. Check out the company’s catalog and website for all the details.
