When you’re shopping for a replacement engine, transmission, cylinder heads, etc., it’s important to make sure you’re comparing products “apples to apples.” As you make up your mind, here are six details you won’t want to overlook.
Is it just rebuilt, or is it fully remanufactured?
Rebuilt products are basically products that have had some new parts installed. They still may retain a number of used components, and they’ve had little (if any) machine work done.
On the other hand, remanufactured products are more accurately compared with new – and sometimes better than new. They’re built using all-new components, and they’re machined to current OE specifications or better. Nothing is left untouched.
How complete is a remanufactured build?
Does the engine include things like timing components and gasket sets? Gearhead remanufactured engines do.
Are you getting all the TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) updates?
These updates are improvements to the original design issued by the OE manufacturers. Gearhead remanufactured products include every TSB update.
Have the products been tested? How well?
Every product from Gearhead Engines comes sim-tested to verify proper function and performance.
Do remanufactured products come with warranties? How good are they?
This is important, because warranties can vary hugely between companies. Gearhead remanufactured product warranties are trusted and dependable and range from 12 months to three years with no-fault protection add-ons in some cases. Be sure check out our warranties and feel free to ask if you have additional questions.
What about shipping?
Gearhead Engines charges a low, FLAT shipping fee with every product, and we’ll always pick up the core for return FREE of charge.
