Engine Reconditioning Process
All vehicle models have different engine designs and understanding of these designs will help to accomplish top quality reconditioned or reco engines. The process of engine reconditioning includes thorough cleaning, measuring and checking each engine and its components.
In order to remove dirt, grime, oil, and debris, everything is put into a hot acid tank for the chemical cleaning process. It is considered an important process, if the components are badly damaged like oil pump failure or small bits of metals are left in the engine. After cleaning all the separate engine components, they are put into the place where they are reconditioned. There are mainly four types of the process used for reco engines:
- Cylinder Head Diagnosis & Repair Process
- Crankshaft Diagnosis & Repair Process
- Conrod Diagnosis & Repair Process
- Engine Block Diagnosis & Repair Process
If cylinder head is to be diagnosed and repaired, then firstly the components are disassembled, chemically clean and checked for valves, collets condition, and valve spring pressures. It is checked for height, hardness, pressure, and straightness with the help of submersible pressure tester. This inspection is done to resolve any issues related to cracks or leaks.
After the final inspection, the report and quotation are prepared as a part of engine reconditioning process. You can save hundreds of dollars with our correct advice on cost of the reconditioned engine.
This is considered as the most common issue occurring due to the engine ends getting damaged. This results in engine producing a loud knocking sound. If you observe any such sound, then it should be repaired immediately.
By removing material from the shaft in the grinding process and replacing and installing oversize bearings, the crankshaft can be machined back to working condition. At the end, inspection is done using a black light and Magnaflux equipment, to find the hidden cracks.
Generally, conrod repair process involves thorough cleaning and checking done with magnetic particle inspection. After that, the rods are checked for straightness to avoid any bend or twist in the rod and save from future failure.
If you have observed any engine block issues then it is recommended to repair it soon. The main causes of this problem can be overheating, loss of oil pressure, the age of vehicles, insufficient maintenance or any mechanical failure. You can fix all these major issues with us.
