As an engine ages, its parts will inevitably wear down and wear out. The fact is, however, that some engine components will deteriorate faster than others, and the engine block itself will likely still be good when many of its attachments no longer function. When an older engine is beginning to fail, or has already broken down, it may be time to invest in engine reconditioning. The higher cost of purchasing a new engine or a whole new vehicle often makes it cost-effective to utilize the services of engine reconditioners.
What Is Engine Reconditioning?
Engine reconditioners specialize in rebuilding an engine in such a way as to make it run strong again, more or less like it did when it was fresh out of the factory. In fact, when an engine is 100 percent reconditioned, the term “remanufactured” is often applied to it. It is also possible, however, to partially or “selectively” recondition an engine. Whether you should opt for full or partial engine reconditioning will depend on the condition of the parts and the length of time they are likely to last.
There are many specifics involved in the work of engine reconditioners. The cast iron engine block must be thoroughly cleaned. New, high-quality parts must replace the old ones wherever necessary. The process must be done in a step-by-step manner to ensure correct assembly, and the renovated engine must be tested in various ways before it is reinstalled in the vehicle frame.
Some of the most common engine parts to replace during a reconditioning operation include
the following: cam, main, and connecting rod bearings, camshaft, valve lifters, timing chain, rocker arms, push rods, oil pump, pistons, and rings. The block will typically be cleaned, bored, and honed. The crankshaft will normally be reground, and the cylinder head will receive new valves and springs.
