Our History

Cylinder Head Machining | T&L Engineering Bedford

Born in 1967

T&L Engineering have been providing a reconditioning service for the last 48 years with a combined experience of over 65 years in engine reconditioning and machining.

T&L Engineering staff and a combination of some of the latest machinery available means that they can enjoy a reputation for precision engineering. All our work is carried out in-house from white metalling to ally welding.

Although a vast majority of our work is cylinder head work, usual engine work such as crankshaft grinding, re-boring and sleeving still plays a vital role in the company’s services offered. The company specializes in line boring, white metalling, metal spraying and dynamic crankshaft balancing.

Our passion for what we do transfers into our craftsmanship
