4 Things To Check When Buying A used engine
When buying a used engine from a scrap yard in South Africa there are certain checks you should carry out before handing over any money. Here are the 4 things to check when buying a used car engine.
1. Borescope Inspection Camera - You should always inspect the engine block first for any signs of damage or if the surface is smooth without cracks, dents or excessive wear and tear then you can proceed with inspecting the bores. The borescope inspection camera allows you to peer into the engines cylinder head or cylinders to view how worn down they are and whether there is rust that could lead to expensive repairs later on.
2. Compression Test - This test tells you how many psi (pounds per square inch) is required in order for the cylinder to hold a vacuum. This is done by checking the number of psi required in order for the engine?s piston rings to seal and no air escapes in and around the combustion chamber. If there is low compression in a cylinder then you can assume that it has worn/damaged valves, rings and/or timing components. Low compression could also be due to faulty head gasket or block damage such as cracks or porosity.
3. Coolant Check - Inspecting cooling passages becomes important when buying any second hand vehicle since they are most likely having issues with cooling system which could be due to rust & corrosion on cast iron blocks! Ensure there isn?t any orange corrosion around coolant passages seeing this is a common sign that there is a problem.
4. Basic Engine Inspection - Check for any signs of damage such as cracks, dents and impact marks because it could mean the engine block could be damaged as well. Make sure there aren?t any signs of leakage or oil passing through connecting rod bearings. If you see black, dry oil stains on pistons then this might indicate worn piston rings and engine bearing need to be replaced too.
If everything checks out ok with the compression test and borescope inspection camera inspections then you can proceed with buying the second-hand car engine from a scrap yard in South Africa!
