Wells Reid Recondition Engine Service

The main steps of the reconditioned car engine begin with acquiring an excellent core unit to work in the first place.

Once a good core unit has been acquired it should be cleaned and inspected. After the first inspection, the units get separated into their component parts for a thorough inspection. The cylinder head is removed and the connecting bar/cylinder assemblies are removed, the crankshaft is also removed and every individual part is sent to their specific inspection stations to have them blueprinted to spec by Wells Reid

The engine block is stripped exposed and sent for machining, cylinder exhausts are checked for roundness and machined if necessary. Sometimes, the cylinder exhausts are machined and sleeves are put to take the engine back to its standard-sized exhausts. The block is then flipped over and the mainline journals for the wrench are machined to ensure everything is perfectly lined up within specification for the reinsertion of the crankshaft once machining is finished.

The cylinder head station at first skims the surface of the cylinder head to make sure that there is a flat mating surface and after that, it is fitted to the pressure testing machine which will recognize if the cylinder head has any internal breaks. Once these underlying steps are finished the cylinder head is separated and valves are removed to check the valve seats. new valve stem seals are then installed, valves are reinserted into the seats and lapped into place to make a positive seal and the head is developed back.

Over on the crankshaft station, the crankshaft is mounted on a particular horizontal milling machine where the wrenches are inspected for straightness. if machining is required to bring the basic and big end journals to a particular resistance, it is done during that time. after machining the wrench is then cleaned on the journals to high-quality finish required to mate it with the replacement wrench bearing sets.

Connecting bars are then removed from the pistons and checked for both cracks and straightness if a connecting bar is observed to be either bent or cracked, it is disposed of and replaced with a new one that has previously passed these tests. new small end connecting bar heading are fitted as of now. the piston is polished independently and the old ring sets removed. the ring landings are cleared and polished to accept the new set of piston rings and after that, they are reassembled with the connecting bars and sent over to the reassembly centre.

When every individual unit is finished in their particular reconditioning stations all of the parts are put together again at this reassembly station so the unit can be developed. using new quality gasket sets and oil seals the units are reassembled, considering manufacture’s torque specs and successions. Once the unit is reassembled it is then sent for final quality control where the professionals confirm both pressure and oil pressure readings and prepare the units for delivery.
