Engine reconditioning steps are as follows:
– Disassemble the engine entirely and accurately check every and each smallest component. All the components that are usually subject to wear and tear such as pistons, filters, gaskets, etc. are replaced. The parts that shall be reconditioned go through specific machinery in order to maximise the end result in terms of cleanness and smoothness.
– Identify, check and store all the engine parts and recondition the small components like oil pumps, etc.
– Engine crankcase, crankshaft, pistons, cam shaft and other essential engine components are processed in order to restore them to their original condition. After this process the reconditioned component will be virtually equivalent and offer the same performance as new components. Cracks or defects that may occur in the reconditioning process are verified in the final inspection. Valves are reconditioned or replaced if necessary.
– If a component cannot be reconditioned to its original working order, it’s replaced. Injection pumps are reconditioned as well.
– When this process is complete, all the reconditioned components are washed and the engine is assembled back together. Eventually a final test is carried out in order to make sure the engine is ready to be delivered.
