Here’s Why More People Are Choosing Rebuilt Engines Over Crate Engines
August 29, 2017
Over the past few years, a growing number of people are choosing rebuilt and remanufactured crate engines when it comes to larger engines. Before we dive in any deeper, it’s important to understand the subtle differences between these types of engines:
What is a Rebuilt Engine?
When engines are rebuilt, all parts are inspected, cleaned and replaced if necessary. Dismantling the engine and having expert diagnostic capabilities coupled with onsite machining centers has allowed nFLOW and others to produce a higher quality repair at lower customer cost and improved delivery times.
What is a Remanufactured Engine?
Remanufactured crate engines, however, take the rebuilding process one step further. Each engine is completely dismantled and extensively cleaned.
Premium, quality components (pistons, rings, rods, bearings, etc.) replace any broken or worn-down parts. In short, the remanufacturing process is designed to get the engine as close to brand new as possible.
These crate engines are the right choice for smaller engines such as ATV/UTV, passenger cars and light trucks.
What’s the difference?
An important distinction between rebuilt engines and remanufactured crate engines and crate engines is cost. Groups such as farmers, excavating companies, etc., are increasingly dismayed with the rising prices of crate engines when a less-expensive rebuilt engine can get the job done.
nFLOW produces higher quality repair at lower customer cost and improved delivery times for two reasons:
- After disassembling the engine, we use our expertise and precise equipment to diagnose the problem
- We have powerful, on-site machining equipment
Bottom line: if you’re unhappy with the alternatives, consider rebuilding your large engines.
