We are meticulous in preparing our rebuilt engines, and whenever we carry out a full rebuild on any engine, the following work is always done:

Crankshafts are sent to our machine shop and fully inspected to check for imperfections. Polished and ground where necessary.

Cylinder heads are sent to a specialist cylinder head company where they completely dismantled, and skimmed to ensure a perfect seal on the block.

All valves are resurfaced and lapped to ensure a gas tight seal with the valve seat.

Valve guides are checked and replaced if there is any damage (damage occurs if the cam belt has snapped, causing the valves to be bent where they impact with the pistons). Once rebuilt, the head is pressure-tested.

Engine blocks are carefully inspected for imperfections or cracks. Engine bores are cleaned, checked and re-honed to allow efficient bedding in of the new piston rings.

Oil pumps are stripped down and their tolerances checked. If rotor clearance is found to be outside the manufacturer's recommended limits then the oil pumps are replaced.

New parts: The following new replacement parts are used in every engine rebuild:

    • Piston rings
    • Big end bearings
    • Main bearings
    • Thrust washers
    • Cam belt kit (cam belt, tensioner and idler pulley)
    • Variator
    • Water pump
    • Head gasket set
    • Bottom end gasket set
    • Rear main oil seal
    • Spark plugs
    • Oil
    • Oil filter
    • Air filter
    • Balance shaft belt and tensioner (2 litre only)
    • Head bolts

Engine Warranty

All full rebuilds come with a 12 month / 12,000 mile warranty.

Terms and conditions of warranty

To validate the warranty the following terms and conditions must be adhered to:

No earlier then 400 miles, and no later than 550 miles after fitting, the engine must be drained of the initial fill of running-in oil, a new oil filter fitted, and the engine refilled with the appropriate quantity of Fuchs engine oil.

Thereafter engine oil and coolant levels must be checked weekly or every 500 miles (whichever arises sooner).

Oil starvation, overheating and water ingress, however caused, will void the warranty.

The engine must be run in carefully, and must not be revved above 3,500 rpm for the first 1,000 miles.

The initial 500 mile oil and filter change must be carried out on time by us using Fuchs oil.

The warranty is not transferable should you sell your car.
