    Hi ,

    I have bone stock TM K9c that has worn through the plating under the exhaust port , it has been plated once already according to the previous owner ,  I want to stay stock so I have 3 options :

    1 – Buy a new “C” cylinder .

    2 – Hope someone has a low hr. used stock “C” cylinder (no port work)

    that I could buy at a decent price .

    3 – Re-Plate my cylinder and if I do that , who do you recommend , he said

    Power Seal USA done it the last time and they seem to have done a good

    job blending into the ports , unknown hours but has the 2nd size up

    from stock bore (53.94) .

    Millenium is the known throughout the motorsports industry as the best of the best when it comes to replating.  I’ve also have excellent results from Langcourt in Alabama.  Whoever you use, just make sure you send a brand new piston with the cylinder you want replated.  Don’t use any shop that tells you that’s not necessary.  Good luck.
