The popularity of Remanns Remanufactured Engines is increasing with every passing day. While the remanufactured engine can also be installed by any neighborhood workshop, some people are keen to get the thrill of doing it all by themselves. For such enthusiasts, here is a quick ‘Do-It-Yourself’ (DIY) guide which will help them through the entire process.
How to install a Remanns Remanufactured Engine
You will need the following items:
- Engine Hoist
- Floor Jack
- Adjustable Wrench
- Working Gloves
- Removing the Old Engine
Inspect your working area carefully and then park your car at a location where you can conveniently put the engine hoist for lifting the old engine out. After you have parked your car at your work station, fix the engine hoist. It will be ideal if you can remove the hood of your car so that you can work freely without any hindrance. The hood can be removed quite easily by loosening the hood bolts, though you may need some help to lift it off.
Next, follow these steps sequentially:
- Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
- Drain out the radiator.
- Remove the fan and alternator, loosen the intake air supply and fuel lines.
- Remove the air conditioning compressor and power steering pump. Leave the hoses in place, else you will have to reconnect them later.
- Remove the electric wiring from the motor.
- Loosen the exhaust manifold.
- Remove the bolts which are keeping the engine in place.
Now, bring the engine hoist in position and hook the old engine to the hoist. Slowly lift the engine up and keep it away at a safe place.
- Placing the Remanns Remanufactured Engine in place
Hook the remanufactured engine to the hoist and lift it off the ground sufficiently high. Roll the engine hoist close to your car after checking for clearance on all sides. Slowly guide the remanufactured engine to the cavity and lower it down.
- Installing the remanufactured engine
As you slowly lower down the engine, make sure the crankshaft centerline is aligned with the transmission input shaft. Also ensure the engine dowel pins are aligned with all the holes in the transmission bell housing.
- Fastening the Engine
Fasten the remanufactured engine to the transmission bolts. You will now have to crawl under your car and make sure that the torque convertor is aligned with the bolt holes in the flywheel. Now you can tighten the rest of the bolts so that the engine is held in place.
- Fixing the fuel lines and hoses
Re-install the fuel lines and hoses which you had removed earlier.
You are now ready to start the Remanns Remanufactured Engine which you have installed just now!
