What is the difference between your cylinder kits and this kit (overhaul kit)?
Our inframe/overhaul kits have more items, and are specifically made for each engine type, so you will get all of the cylinders, pistons, pistons rings, connecting rods, connecting rod bearings, crankshaft bearings, thrust washers for the ENTIRE engine. So, if you have an 8 cylinder engine, you will receive 8 cylinders with our inframe kit. Our cylinder kits are designed for work on a single cylinder at a time. For example, if you order the 8V71 Cylinder Kit, it would only come with one cylinder, whereas our 8V71 Inframe kit would come with eight cylinders.

What are some advantages of using an inframe/overhaul kit?
With an inframe kit, you can replace many key elements of the engine without having to disassemble the entire unit. It is a way to get an engine back up and running like it should, that requires fewer parts being taken off before doing so.

I want to do a full overhaul of my engine. What else is needed?
The inframe kit is a good start to get the engine back up and running. If you want to do a complete overhaul, it is a good idea to also buy new injectors, fuel pump, fresh water pump, blower repair kit and thermostat. With all of these items replaced, your engine will be as good as an engine with zero hours on it. It is also recommended that these items be kept in your shop, as spares, along with a raw water impeller and filters.

What comes in your rebuild kits? Can you custom make one?
Yes, we custom make each kit so you can get exactly the right kit for your project. The items that come in each kit varies, so please scroll down if you would like to see more information about a specific rebuild kit.
