Going Back in Time

Can’t find what you need for your restoration project?

We know the internal combustion engine requires regular maintenance to ensure its continued function. Engine oil, power steering and brake fluid are examples of engine maintenance that must be kept up and checked at regular intervals. Often wear and tear over time can leave an engine totally unusable. In which case the restorer might remove the existing engine and replace it with a similar or modern engine substitute. In order to conduct an engine restoration, first a technician will conduct a thorough inspection. Often pre-restored vehicles have engines that have gone without maintenance for years and therefore require engine restoration to return them to working order. The engine is removed from the car and inspected for broken and non-functional parts. Typical parts that require replacing include pistons, spark plugs, fuel lines, battery, fuses, timing belt and various gaskets. All are subject to deterioration over time. Structural components like the engine block, cam shaft and crank shaft are less likely to require repair but not uncommon. Typically, after all required parts are gathered, the disassembled pieces will be cleaned, remanufactured (if required), and reassembled. The engine is then replaced within the car.
