Remanufacturing An Engine
Noteworthy, remanufactured engines is the reconditioning of a “core” or worn out used engine to meet industry standard specifications.
Seems like engines suffer from countless sources of wear and tear that can eventually destroy them. While a properly maintained engine might last hundreds of thousands of miles, a poorly maintained one can and will fail. While engine failure occurs, there are several choices, the most cost-effective solution is to choose a remanufactured long block engine.
Building a remanufactured engines that meets original requirements is no small feat. But it’s the only way to provide the most reliable and respected remanufactured engines in the industry. Roadmaster Engine World does this by using quality parts with proven and constantly improving processes. These fully remanufactured engines are assembled with precision and impeccable quality control.
A remanufactured engines is one that has been rebuilt to prescribed standards and specifications by highly skilled machinists using state-of-the-art equipment and components. During this process many new components are installed that meet or exceed original equipment performance standards. Remanufacturing is done with precision and involves fully disassembling the entire engine. Cleaning all the components and resurfacing or replacing parts that are not in good condition.
Frequently, remanufactured engines are better than the engines originally installed at the factory. They are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs.
Engine Blocks, Rods, Crankshafts and Cams are thoroughly cleaned, tested for wear, straightness and cracks.
What is Sim Testing and How Does it Differ from Dyno Testing?
Dyno testing – is a test to an engine with it operating out of the vehicle under its own power. This means running and firing under fuel and with a load applied.
Sim tested (or simulation testing) – Is a test performed by manufacturers of rebuilt engines but is often referred to incorrectly as Dyno testing. Sim testing is the process of using a machine to spin the engine. The SimTest machine flows preheated oil through the engine while spinning the rotating assembly. This allows us to test for compression, proper oil pressure and any noises. It also allows the engine lifters to be pumped up thus aiding in eliminating any start up tapping.
The SIMTEST is a simple engine test that standardizes quality and reduces any possible comebacks. The relative success or failure of a remanufactured engine is a matter of physics, plain and simple. This machine checks it all: compression, pressure maintenance, oiling, valve adjustment, turning torques and a host of other functions.
These are checked against rigid industry standards. With the SIMTEST machine, we systematically test all mechanical functions and procedures involved in engine remanufacturing. It’s accurate and dependable and helps assure our guarantee to you for the highest quality remanufactured engine possible. So, the next time you order a remanufactured engine from us, rest assured that it is the highest quality engine.
The engine is not under its own fire or running on fuel at this point. The reasons it is done in this manner, as opposed to a true Dyno test, are as follows:
- The cost (it would increase the cost of each engine by $1000.00-$2000.00)
- The man hours involved (it would increase the end time for rebuilding by another 8 hours, due to having to dress, run, and undress each engine)
- Equipment (we would have to have in house every computer, harness, fuel management system etc for every engine we rebuild, which is roughly 3500)
So overall – it is not feasible to Dyno test because it would end up costing you twice as much for each engine. The Sim test provides an excellent baseline, and allows us to weed out any mistakes made in the re-manufacturing process.
Therefore Roadmaster’s remanufactured engines are built using the finest new or core blocks and are built with brand new components.
