My name is Mike Chilando and I’m the founder and owner of "Alkydigger, Inc." aka Alkydigger.com
– The Worlds Largest and Best Dedicated Fuel Injection Store
My company began as the result of a happy accident back in 2006, when I decided to build a nostalgia front engine dragster using an early Hemi. Midway through the project my plans changed and I listed all the equipment for sale, soon realizing that at age 59 I was more suited to helping others find parts. I embarked on this new endeavor and also began offering service work for Hilborn and Enderle fuel injection systems, over the next eight years. In 2011 we formed Alkydigger.net as a platform to more successfully market the more sophisticated equipment. We then bought a new building and expanded the business again in 2013. We are now Hilborn's Largest Dealer and Enderle's largest East Coast distributor, Joe Hunt Vertex Magnetos, and Dyer Blowers and MPR Filters Milodon Gear Drives - The Blower Shop Master Dealer, as well as Select Zoomie Headers. These are High Quality product lines that compliment my fuel injection business. We have over $500,000.00 in Hilborn and Enderle, Vertex, and Dyer Blower, and Blower Shop equipment parts at any given time.
We offer complete restoration of Hilborn, Enderle, Crower, Algon, Pete Jackson, and Kinsler Injectors. We flow test fuel pumps, and take some select fuel injections and Magnetos in on trade for new or rebuilt units that you may purchase from Alkydigger.
We will always provide Free Technical Advice to all our customers that we build and design fuel systems for.
Our newest product line is Hilborn’s Electronic Fuel Injections which bring Old World appearance to your Hot Rod or Boat with electronic controlled, self managed software, and can be driven daily with good fuel mileage.
With five employees, and a new 3000 sq. ft. building, we are always growing; thanks to all of you wonderful customers.
Toni Chilando Taylor - Office Manager, and Sales - not too hard on the eyes either
Shannon Chilando Cullen - Shipping, Receiving, Stocking, and Receptionist - thinks she's cuter than Toni, but they run about even
Bill Addison - Services Fuel Pumps, Builds injection, Flows Barrel Valves; and eats twice as much lunch as Mike, but weighs half as much
Trudy Taylor - Part time receptionist, and brings a bit of graphics to the table that was sorely missing
We work hard to ship our customer's orders on time, every time. After owning twelve different kinds of businesses, I have finally found the one that "fuels my passion".
I am proud to be associated with:
The Mid Ohio Gassers
~ President, Mike Chilando
Our business model and mission statement is simple:
Deliver quality new and used race and custom parts to my valued customers on time, at a reasonable price, and tell them what they need to hear, not what they may want to hear.
