Our process starts out with a health check of the engine with a compression test to determine the health of the engine. We then clean and wash the engine as complete as possible in order to remove the worst of the “baked-on” oil and dirt.
Breakdown of the engine comes next. Examining and checking specifications on all parts removed with the intention of reuse – again ensuring durability and avoiding underperforming engines and unexpected costs.
At this point, we’ll know exactly what we’ll need to do. What parts need to be ordered and/or if any additional work or machining is required. When all parts are in and everything is ready, we will start on building your new power plant up.
If necessary or wanted, we will balance and polish the crankshaft, weight the pistons, hone the block, grind piston rings… We do it all on request, and we will inform you beforehand to the best of our ability of the weak points and needs of the engine. Everything gets documented and you get a comprehensive build sheet and picture documentation.
