What To Expect From A Professional Engine Builder

By October 20, 2011

Follow me on:

Corvette EngineWe're closing out our series on rebuilding or replacing your Corvette engine with a list of tips and things to look for when you're selecting a professional engine rebuilder. There are thousands of independent shops out there that rebuild engines - most of them do a good job, some of them do an excellent job, and a few of them just throw in a new set of bearings, repaint your block and hand it back to you.

Read this article to find out what you can expect from a quality engine rebuilder, and how to spot potential problems. But the best advice is still to consult with your local Corvette club, or any club in your area that deals with vintage cars - they will know who to hire and who to avoid.

Next up, we're going to take an in-depth look at pulling the gas tank from your vintage Corvette and replacing the fuel lines that are hidden up underneath the back of your car - it's a big job, but when you get in there, you'll see why this is a critical part of your Corvette restoration and maintenance.
