All components are remanufactured to equal or exceed factory specifications. The restoration processes described below constitute a “Standard Rebuild”. Additional machine shop procedures and/or new parts are available for additional cost.
EVERY REBUILT HYDRAULIC COMPONENT IS BENCH TESTED ON OUR CUSTOM BUILT TEST STAND. WE TEST FOR FLOW, FUNCTION AND LEAKAGE.
IMPROPERLY FINISHED PARTS WILL RESULT IN AN INFERIOR APPEARANCE!
A complete and thorough restoration involves the proper preparation of the parts to be restored. Whether painted or plated, each piece must go through several steps to be finished right.
For all painted surfaces, each part is degreased, beadblasted, treated with metal prep, sprayed with a special sealant, primed, then painted with two finish coats. Some natural-appearing parts are actually painted.
For all plated surfaces, each part is degreased, beadblasted, treated in an acid bath, then plated with the correct finish.
COMPONENT REBUILDING PROCESS
All pumps are disassembled and examined for excessive wear. The cam ring opening is machined to a smooth finish using a CNC program to retain the correct 8 radius opening shape. The rotor slots are polished to allow for a smooth fit for the new vanes that are installed in the rotor. If required, new rotors, cam rings, and pressure plates are available at additional cost, and along with resurfacing of the base, make almost any pump restorable. When you send your pump to be rebuilt, your 1955-59 reservoir is beadblasted, large dents are removed, then the metal is sealed, primed and painted semi-gloss black. Show quality restoration of your reservoir can be provided at additional cost. The base is beadblasted to bare metal and painted a cast iron color and clearcoated. New seals are installed during assembly. All pumps are tested for correct flow, function and leakage. Bleeding instructions are packaged with each pump. The 1961–1964 reservoirs are NEW reservoirs.
All control valves are remanufactured to function as new. Both ends of corroded valve bodies are sleeved with stainless steel. The casting parts are beadblasted to bare metal and painted a cast iron color and clearcoated. New seats and a new ball stud are fitted in the adapter. New seals are installed during assembly. New and replated hardware adds the finishing touch. All valves are tested on our custom built test stand for correct flow, function and leakage. Installation and bleeding instructions are packaged with each valve.
We stock new power steering cylinders. New cylinders made in the USA are available as well as import versions. We have new cylinders for 1955-57 passenger cars, 1955-59 trucks, 1958-64 passenger cars, 1963-67 trucks, 1963-82 Corvettes, 1962-67 Chevy II/Novas. Call for details.
All generators are disassembled and examined for excessive wear. The armature is rewound. All parts are beadblasted, then painted. The case is fitted with new field coils. The generator is assembled with all new internal parts using our complete rebuilding kits, over 40 new parts, including premium sealed bearings made in North America. The finishing touch is a new Delco-Remy tag with the correct model and serial numbers. New plated hardware is installed and the generator is motored on the bench.
Our rebuilding processes, parts and procedures are subject to change without notice. All restored components are exchange with your rebuildable unit. Your core must be sent first for evaluation, NO EXCEPTION. Cores left after 30 days will be considered abandoned and will be disposed of.
