IPD 2W6000/CS liner with protective IPD top and bottom caps
This month we highlight IPD cylinder liner packaging. Since having an induction-heat-treated cylinder liner was one of our first unique products at IPD many years ago, it seems only right to again begin with the centerpiece of our product line. This time, it is the care we take to package our liner. You may have already begun to see this new packaging on many of our liners and more are in process of being integrated into stock.
Some features include:
Ultrasonic cleaning at the factory as a last step before packaging to remove any machining residue left during production
Rust-prohibitive to assure proper shelf life.
Heavy-duty sealed plastic bag to keep dirt out.
IPD top and bottom caps to prevent flange and bottom surface nicking and to again seal out dirt. We also may include Styrofoam on top and / or bottom for additional protection.
Heavy gauge IPD logo box for attractive presentation.

Why bother?

Because we feel strongly that going the extra steps help assure that the engine owners feels he has received the highest level of quality in the IPD package.


Many new gaskets from 3126 through 3500 series applications. A new NATURAL GAS gallery-cooled piston, as well as above Featured Product IPDSteel™ pistons released for 3406E & C15 engines to name a few!
