Engine Rebuilding Process

A stock engine rebuild includes the following:

Engine block Degreasing, Magnafluxing, aligning, boring and honing.
Cylinder heads Degreasing, Magnafluxing, fitted with new valve guides, valve seats are refaced, deck surface is machined flat, spring pressures are set to manufacturer specifications
Connecting rods Rods are degreased, big end housing is resized, pin bushings are replaced.
Crankshaft The crankshaft is degreased, checked for size and straightness, and if necessary, ground to the next undersize
Assembly The engine is then meticulously assembled, double checking all the running clearances.
Parts The following parts are replaced on every rebuild: pistons, rings, cam, rod, main bearings, all timing components, oil pump, camshaft, lifters, gaskets, seals, valves, pushrods. Rocker arms are inspected and replaced if necessary.

When to rebuild an engine

If you choose to rebuild an engine, in effect you are making a commitment to continue driving the vehicle for some time. Consequently, you should consider the following:

  1. Is the body of the vehicle in good condition?
  2. Is the vehicle in otherwise good mechanical condition?
  3. Do you still enjoy driving the car?

Benefits of engine rebuilding

  • The cost of a stock engine rebuild varies by individual project. However, as an example consider that a new car could cost $20,000, whereas a rebuilt engine could range from $4,000 - $5,000. The cost savings of rebuilding engines can be substantial.
  • Rebuilt engines typically provide improved gas mileage and fewer emissions.
  • For the environmentally-conscious, rebuilding engines avoids the production of raw materials required to build new engines.
