Engine Restoration

Engine Restoration


We get asked this a lot, as for a customer its an important question to ask not just to find out what work will be carried out for there money but also for us to explain the hard work that goes into each engine restored.

This is an example of what we turn into a first class engine to be reused for a long time to come!


We are not a 9-5 business and are open 7 days a week from early morning to late into the evening so we are always on hand to help in anyway we can.


The first thing to do if you would like an engine restored is to give us a call and discuss your requirments. We will restore an engine to any budget from a cosmetic clean up to a full strip and rebuild.


We will ask for the fuel in the engine to be removed and the engine packaged in cardboard and bubblewrap for its transport to us. We will organise all paperwork and bookings to suit the customer to enable UPS to collect.

The engine will arrive the following morning where we will carry out a full list of tests and observations and discuss our findings with the customer.


For a full rebuild we carry out the following:


After its initial checks we will strip the engine of all its components and check all for damage and wear. The engine block, fuel tank, prop and gearbox are stripped and put into primer before having a good few coats of new paint and finished in 2 pack lacquer we will then replace the driveshaft tube for a newly chromed one.


Once all the paintwork is completed and all other components either replaced or cleaned the rebuild starts. We always use all new gaskets and bolts where required and replace piston rings, throttle cable, prop spring, plug cap and any other item deemed not in a serviceable state.


All oil is replaced in the gearbox and then gearbox is  connected to the engine, at this point we hand make a new exhaust from top quality stainless steel to original specification and fitted. All optional extras can be fitted at this time or during the rebuild process.

The engine then is put through initial testing which involves a slow speed run then a high speed run where we check optimum performance and coolant flow. The final stage of testing is a endurance run to make sure all is running fine at full temperature.


We then organise shipping back to the customer at a day best for them and package the engine all ready for collection.


All engines go back with a full 6 month warranty as well as full instructions and new pull cord


All spares can be included with the engine if required such as spare prop springs and oil.


Once the engine has returned back to the customer – we are still here to help with any questions or advise that is required.
