Our technicians follow a rigorous, regimented process for rebuilding engines. The process includes nine separate phases:
This vital ﬁrst step is a thorough process during which we develop a customized rebuild plan and cost estimate for you. The speciﬁc needs of your engine are determined through a comprehensive evaluation.
Once the rebuild plan is established, your engine will be completely disassembled. The parts will be inspected and measured against our strict reusability guidelines. Those parts that do not meet our high standards will be replaced with new Cat parts.
This phase of the process addresses equipment needs not typically included in an engine overhaul.
During reassembly, your engine will receive any required updates and your choice of optional performance enhancement upgrades that have occurred since your engine was originally manufactured.
Our professional technicians will carefully and completely reassemble your engine.
Testing and Validation
Following the original commissioning procedures of the rebuild process, the engine will be retested and re-commissioned.
Your engine will perform like new and look like new—after a paint job. A Cat Certiﬁed Engine Rebuild decal also will be issued.
New Cat Certiﬁed Engine Rebuild identiﬁcation numbers
A new Cat Certiﬁed Engine Rebuild number identiﬁes your engine and entitles you to Caterpillar extended service coverage options.
The rebuild process is not considered complete until your operators are satisﬁed with the performance of your engine in its working environment.
