Please read our suggestions to avoid premature engine failure. A copy of the limited warranty and suggestions are packed with each remanufactured engine.



Suggestions on items to look for when installing a replacement engine to avoid early engine failure.


1. Compare replacement engine with one being removed to be sure they are exactly the same.


2. When installing crank pulley, turn engine to number one position, install crank pulley, and check timing mark indicator, as to TDC (possible rubber mount pulley slippage).


3. All related parts should be thoroughly cleaned - - such as pan, timing cover, intake manifold, etc.


4. If original engine has blown and scattered pieces such as piston particles, thoroughly inspect intake manifold for foreign material to avoid damage to replacement engine.


5. Check intake manifold for cracks, remove heat shield and inspect.


6. Check exhaust system back to tail pipe to avoid back pressure. Make sure heat riser functioning properly.


7. Make sure you install a new oil pump or rebuild oil pump assembly contained in timing cover. Make sure housing in timing cover is not worn creating reduced pressure situation.


8. Always install new lifters with short block


9. On V-8 intake manifold, such as Ford 390, 400 or Olds 350, gasket should be well sealed so that oil will not seep into combustion chamber. Make sure the intake manifold is not warped.


10. When installing heads on short block, do not over torque cyl. head bolts. Re-torque cyl. head in proper sequence. Make sure that head bolts are clean and that they do not bottom out.


11. On engines that require adjusting rockers, this should be done before starting engine to avoid damage to camshaft. Also, check to see that push rods do not bottom out lifter plunger - - or that plunger does not touch retainer clip.


12. Check motor mounts for oil soak and parting of rubber from metal.


13. On those engines with oil pump hex shaft, replace hex shaft. Also, check bottom of distributor for rounding as new hex shaft will not turn if it is too loose.


14. Make sure that dip stick and dip stick tube are the proper length to register required amount of engine oil.


15. Make sure crank case is filled to proper capacity and radiator is full of coolant.


16. Use only motor oil conforming to factory specifications.


17. Make sure that radiator is filled and that there are no air locks.


18. Radiator should be rodded or replaced with new 100% full flowing radiator. Flushing old radiator is not good enough.


19. Set timing to factory specs.


20. Check radiator cap.


21. Install new PVC valve, EGR valve and make sure smog devices are installed and functioning properly.


22. Check distributor and rebuild if necessary.


23. Install new spark plugs of proper heat range.


24. Install new heater hoses, radiator hoses, belts, water pump, thermostat, temperature sending unit.


25. Replace oil, air and fuel filters.


26. Replace fan belts.


27. Inspect fan clutch for proper operation.


28. Re-torque cyl. heads after engine has reached operating temperature.


29.  Always replace oil cooler, do not attempt to clean it.


Remember - - you want to give your remanufactured engine a chance to live a long and trouble free life. Protect your investment and install it properly. An improper installation will normally lead to premature engine failure.
