Remanufacture vs. Rebuild

There is a distinct difference between remanufacturing and rebuilding an engine. When an engine is remanufactured, each and every internal and external component is serviced. Your engine is returned to you looking as it did when it first came from the factory. Instead, rebuilding an engine includes replacing or repairing specific parts. They may or may not be replaced with pieces authentic to your engine. Your engine is brought to good working order. Not all engines need full remanufacturing. We will assess the job and work within your budget to get you back to the thrill of boating.
