Remanufacture Your Engine ?

There are 5 significant advantages to having your own engine remanufactured

   1. Save 5% off of our exchange longblock prices.

   2. No core deposit assessed.

   3. It ends the search. Decades ago there were a handful of different engines to put into America's cars. Modern manufacturing has brought rapid mid-year improvements, imports and variations resulting in the thousands. There is a need for so many different engines that no single company can have them all or even most of them.

   4. We can make absolutely certain that what we sell you fits perfectly in your car or truck. Mid year production changes and many different minor differences make engine ordering somewhat risky. Sometimes Vin codes seem to be just a general guideline. Older cars can have absolutely anything under the hood other than what they should have. For example: In 1998 a previous owner of your 1992 car had a 1987 junkyard engine installed. If you order a 1992 engine for your 1992 car by mistake you will find out that it doesn't fit. The unpleasant truth is that there are a whole bunch of ways to make the wrong engine sorta fit or kinda work.

   5. We can help diagnose the primary cause of engine failure and other secondary causes of internal damage. (So you or your mechanic can keep it from happening again… Cuz, really folks, most engines don't die on their own from wear. They die from transmission torque converter ballooning and from leaking fuel injectors flooding cylinders and from defective E.G.R valves and from excessively lean carburetors and from clogged catalytic converters and filters . Dig?)

  • The most important thing we can offer you is reliability as a natural result of efficient and systematic procedures. D.S.


* How long will it take altogether?

To estimate the total average approximate number of days it will take for the engine to be trucked to us, for us to custom remanufacture it, and then ship it back to you, double the number of days listed below next to your state, then add an average of 5 days**.

* How to ship an engine.

1. Get a skid at least as pretty as this one. If you buy one, don't pay more than $5

** 5 days is the average time it takes to in house  remanufacture an engine. However, parts availability, core supply and other conditions can greatly extend the time frame. For example: We had parts stacked up at the Canadian border for weeks after the 9/11 attack. We also waited 2 months for a permit for 3 phase electrical machinery early last year and had to wait on an outside shop. As a result engines may take up to 30 days before we get screamed at.

2. Now you don't have to be this fancy to strap your core engine down but it sure makes it easy. This set of  four came from Sam's Club and was about $13. We will send them back with the fresh engine.

Dog chain works too.

3. It might be a good idea to nail some two-by fours to the skid around the block so it doesn't slide around under the straps. Oh, yeah. Don't forget to get ALL the oil and water out of the engine before it goes on the truck.

4. Call us the day before the engine can be ready. If we've e-mailed you a "bill of lading" with a quote number in the upper left hand corner, you can call them directly for a pickup at your convenience. We use a variety of Common Carrier trucking companies to keep prices low but they almost always pick up the next day or same day if you call early enough.

5. Now, you have to get the engine-on-the skid onto a 48 inch tall truck bed using one of four methods.

A. Forklift from a truck dock.

B. If you still have the cherry-picker, chain fall or come-along, use that. (lift from the engine block or heads with the skid dangling)

4. If your engine is in a residential neighborhood, or you can't hang around all day waiting on a truck, you may want to, one way or another, get the skid on the back of a pickup truck and take it to the local trucking terminal where a forklift can easily transfer it to the semi-trailer truck. You might save a few bucks off of the shipping charges too.

3. When we e-mail you the freight documents you must print and hand the driver, you might call the trucking company phone number on the top, to see if they have a lift gate truck available but be prepared to pay a little extra for the special treatment.

If it makes it any easier to handle, it's OK to remove the cylinder head(s). Just make sure we get ALL the longblock parts. It's just as important to not send us anything extra either as we will assume you don't want it anymore and we will throw it away. (like lifetime platinum spark plugs, brackets, balancers and pickups, etc.
