Restoring locomotive and marine camshafts’ performance
Hillcrest Camshaft Service has over 50 years of experience remanufacturing marine and locomotive diesel camshafts. We have been remanufacturing 2 cycle diesel camshafts since the late 50’s. Technology has changed drastically and we have kept up with all of these changes. Today we use the most state of the art machinery and testing equipment in the camshaft industry. Our extensive knowledge with this latest technology allows us to remanufacture the new 4-stroke diesel camshafts as well as the larger EMD, Alco and GE engine camshafts.

We built upon our years of Camshaft remanufacturing knowledge to design a camshaft that we believe can rival OEM camshafts. These cams are designed with the latest 1080 steel and induction hardened to 64C. These camshafts have been tested in some of the world’s finest marine fleets and Class 1 and Short Line Railroads.

Today’s Marine engines are some of the most strenuously tested engines – a marine camshaft’s performance has to remain optimal. In most cases, they are under constant loads, pushing large loads up river against the current. Some of these engines are seldom shut off. Hillcrest Camshaft Service consistently provides our Marine customers with the highest quality remanufactured camshafts and crankshafts in the industry.
