Remanufactured Gas Engines Built to Original Factory Specifications, Backed by Factory Warranty and Service Support

 

(Miami) February 14, 2013 –  Volvo Penta today announced at the Miami International Boat Show a new expanded line of factory direct remanufactured blocks for marine gasoline engines.

 

The Volvo Penta 5.0, 5.7 and 8.1 liter V8 remanufactured long blocks are available now, with two-to-three-day delivery to most locations. They come with a one-year factory warranty.

 

The remanufactured base engine assemblies are produced to factory specifications by a tightly controlled process using state-of-the-art computer-controlled robotic manufacturing systems, providing original equipment durability and performance. They are built with new parts from the original equipment manufacturer and are designed for the saltwater marine environment. The valves, pistons, bearings, timing chain, head gaskets, brass freeze plugs and oil pump, for instance, are replaced with new pieces that are equivalent to or better than a new marine engine. Each unit goes through the same rigorous testing, inspection and acceptance as factory new engines before they are program certified.

 

“These factory remanufactured systems will give our dealers and customers a lower-cost alternative to new engines for repowering applications with no sacrifice in quality and performance,” said Ed Monacchio, vice president, After Market and Customer Support of Volvo Penta Region Americas. “We intend to expand our line of remanufactured products for other popular Volvo Penta engine models during the coming year.”
