technique of testing the engine with a pre-calibrated dynamometer.
Test run of Engines ensures correct piston ring seating and
measures and records engine torque & horse power Output.
Engine receive an average of 2 hours test run to achieve proper
cylinder compression and complete operation information of
performance prior to return to service.
