Engine Balancing Services
Engine balancing eliminates harsh vibrations and helps reduce wear and tear on individual components. Balancing will make your engine last longer and improve its overall performance. Fuel consumption is lower in a well-balanced engine, and emissions are decreased.
Our experienced technicians at Franklin Engineering have proven championship results and use the latest computer technology to accurately balance your engine. For racing vehicles, we balance engines to New Zealand motorsport regulations. Our workshop has digitally controlled Sunnen DCB-750 and DCB-2000 balancing machines, which are both fast and precise. These two machines have different systems controllers and we choose the one that best suits the needs of the job. The versatility of the DCBs means we can use them on crankshafts from a wide variety of engines: single cylinder, Harley Davidson, in-line 4, V6, V8, large diesel, and even industrial pumps and compressors.
While other engine balancing specialists may work on just high-performance vehicles or just industrial or marine motors, the team at Franklin Engineering have the equipment and expertise to balance almost any engine.

All Engines Can Be Improved
The team at Franklin Engineering holds the belief that every engine can benefit from engine balancing. Regardless of its shape, size or use, engines can always run smoother.
Avoid Wearing Out Internal Components
Engine balancing aims to reduce internal loads and vibrations that have a negative impact on your engine’s performance. Over time, an unbalanced engine can wear out or corrode leading to component failure - which can be disastrous for your machine.
Use Less Fuel, Become More Efficient
All new engines are bought balanced. However, this is lost over time with use and replacement of internal components. Engine balancing helps reduce the amount of energy needed to power your machine. This means that you’ll use less fuel, reduce emissions, run better and run smoother.
