REMANUFACTURED ENGINES PROCESS AND POLICY
Every engine is completely disassembled. Blocks, heads, rods, crankshafts and camshafts are thoroughly cleaned to remove all contaminants which can lead to early component and engine failure.
Crankshafts are precision machined to exact tolerances, polished & magnafluxed, then inspected by our quality control department.
Heads are resurfaced to assure a proper sealing surface with the block and a finish compatible with today's new gasket materials. Valve height is mic-d and every head is vacuum tested to assure correct valve seating.
Blocks are magnetic particle inspected for cracks or imperfections. Cylinders are bored and honed and inspected to precise tolerances. Torque plate honing is performed on specific engines to eliminate cylinder head distortion after the head is bolted and torqued to the block. This process eliminates a major cause of engine blow-by. Block surfaces are machined and then inspected to ensure proper finish.
Camshafts are inspected and precisely machined to provide correct lift.
Connecting rods are cleaned, then machined to O.E.M. specifications and honed to the standard diameter of original equipment for even distribution of stress on the bearings. New bushings are installed and machined in all bushed rods. Every rod is carefully inspected for bend and twist.
Big Bear Engine Company’s engines receive a standard set of new parts such as pistons and rings, bearings, gaskets and seals, liners. New parts assure consistent performance and reliability throughout the life of your engine.
To remanufacture is to make as close to new as possible. Wearable parts are automatically replaced. All core material is closely inspected and checked against original equipment specifications for correct dimensional tolerances. Replacement parts are new or requalified. If new, parts are made in the same production processes as original equipment. Testing is performed to manufacturer specifications and original production standard.
