The Duramax engine suffers from main cap movement at high power levels. Even with ARP main studs and cross bolts, we have seen evidence in the bearing wear, of the cap flexing towards the front or the rear of the engine. The SoCal Diesel Billet Main Girdle is a solution that provides structure to the top of the main caps, linking all of the main caps together, as well as linking the main caps to the pan rail.

***SoCal Diesel Assembly Tip***

  • Make sure there is a minimum of .001 clearance between the block and the girdle.
  • During final assembly, make sure you install the oil pump and crank trigger wheel before the girdle.
  • A thin film of gasket sealer is necessary between the block and the girdle.
  • Use the oil pan bolts for alignment purposes when torquing the girdle into place.
  • The two bolts between the flywheel cover and the block will not be used.
