Major and cylinder

Majors and cylinders are the core of the engine and include the cylinder head and block, together with the pistons, rings, connecting rods, crankshaft and camshaft and flywheel. The risks of fitting non-genuine can be significant, such as scuffing and wear causing poor starting, increased oil consumption, loss of power, high fuel consumption, unacceptable smoke or even engine failure.
