Saturday the 5th December was the Charger Club of WA’s first visit to Galloway Engines in Pinjarra. The tour was very well organised and exemplifies the Galloway Engines philosophy of good workmanship and a clean working environment. The range of equipment and professionalism found in this business would be hard to beat in other Western Australian engine shops. The new CWT 5000 crank balancer is a state of the art digital crank balancing machine. External balanced engines should be a thing of the past for us Mopar owners.
Laurie Galloway introduced us all to the history of his company before hand balling over to son David for a lengthy guided tour of the workshop and all the juicy equipment required to machine all items of a diesel or 2/4 stroke engine. Every facet of engine building is covered in-house and basically a semi-blueprinted engine would result if you did the entire engine. The shop has a website, pick-up service (for businesses) and can deal with you personally or have your local mechanic handle the engine or head swap. We wrapped up the tour with a hearty lunch organised by Tammie.
Thanks again to the team down in Pinjarra at Galloway Engines, well worth the trip and we all learnt a bit more about engine building.
“But wait there’s more”. Most attendees headed off to Waroona Dam for a cruise. It was a bit hot on the day and some came prepared for a swim in the dam. We then headed down the hill to the Waroona pub and caught up with John and Liz Urquhart along the way. The beers were particularly nice on that hot day. The numbers dwindled through the afternoon as some headed back home. A hard core group lead by Ron and John headed to the Ravenswood pub for dinner and drinks with a few staying the night.
Fantastic day and if your into engine building you should have been there. Next Year!
