Engines

In 1948, The Ford Motor Company introduced the F-Series with the F-1 through F-6 light and heavy duty trucks. Depending on the series, Ford offered four different engine options ranging from a 95hp Straight-6 to a 145hp Flathead V-8. A year after Ford launched the F-Series truck, Jarvis began operations producing the taps used by the engine manufacturers of the time.

The high output, efficient gas and diesel engines of today require close tolerance manufacturing of light weight, high strength materials. Jarvis works closely with engine manufactures around the world designing and producing application specific taps used in high volume transfer lines and CNC milling centers.
