junk bike + junk parts = more junk .
It is important for the customer to understand when you purchase a FACTORY REBUILT engine, you can either provide your run-out engine to the manufacturer for rebuild or exchange your current engine for an “off the shelf” engine.
Throughout the world, there are a myriad of reputable shops that specialize in overhauling aircraft engines. An OVERHAULED ENGINE is an engine that has been disassembled, cleaned, inspected, repaired as necessary and tested using FAA approved procedures. The engine may be OVERHAULED to NEW LIMITS or SERVICE LIMITS and still be considered a FAA approved OVERHAUL. NEW LIMITS are the FAA approved fits and tolerances that a new engine is manufactured to. This may be accomplished using standard or approved undersized and oversized tolerances. SERVICE LIMITS are the FAA approved allowable wear fits and tolerances that a new limit part may deteriorate to and still be a useable component. This may also be accomplished using standard and approved undersized and oversized tolerances.
