We inspect blocks and check for cracks or damage ( Broken fins and minor imperfections that don't affect performance not criticle ) Remember that many of these blocks are over 50 years old. And occasionally we do some brazing for minor repairs. Next blocks are acid dipped and then glass beaded and all sealing surfaces are refinished!
Unlike many shops that run a hone thru and install new parts ( this only lasts about 1 year ) we bore every engine to our specs which are much better than Kohler used when building these! We also turn all cranks and polish to hold tight specs. Valves are not just lapped in!!! All our engines have Valves, Guides and Seats recut in alignment to get a tight seal.. We recondition lifters and cams also! If cams are too worn they are discarded . If you have us put a head on it is reconditioned also.
We understand that repairs can be costly, We keep our costs low because we only do a few different engines so we have a machine for each operation on that engine. Our prices are very low for the quality of product we offer! If you had a shop do the work we do on these it would cost you over double our cost. That is because we do over 250 engines each year, and we can do one in half the time of other shops. Now I'm talking about quality shops not your buddy or the guy that going to put in a new set of rings. To just address that briefly as many people call us to rebuild a motor they just had rebuilt ( actually amounts to 1/3rd of our work)
We want our customers to get long service life out of their engine so we encourage customers to call us if they need help getting the install in and running properly.
Some parts being offered for these engines are more damaging then good! Most of the budget carbs have no idle circuit that works so it causes engines to run super hot. Coils without a ballist resister will trash engines also as well as fuel pumps. Call us if you have questions!
We have been in business here for 43 years at this same location. Also since 1991 we have been involved in building racing engines and products as Clark Racing. Our motors and carburetors have won many national titles for our customers. We now just concentrate on Garden Tractor Pulling and have hundreds of carbs winning around the US over the past 13 years.
