Dr Ferdinand Porsche
Founder of Porsche cars
"If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself".
The company was founded by Ferdinand Porsche, who was the chief engineer at Mercedes-Benz. He later incorporated his personal engineering plant, where he had developed numerous designs for the ‘People’s Car’ or popularly known as the ‘Volkswagen’. By 1931, Ferdinand incorporated a company under his own name: ‘Porsche’.
Since he was the engineer for the first Volkswagen, the first Porsche created was manufactured from the machinery of the VW Beetle. In 1938, the first Porsche known as the ‘Porsche 64’ was released by the company. The vehicle gained a lot of popularity and this was the start of the successful time in the history of Porsche.
WHAT WE DO WHEN REBUILDING PORSCHE ENGINES
These Porsche engine rebuilds include new piston rings, crank/main bearings, con rod/big end bearings, new hydraulics for both heads, new gaskets, seals, chains, tensioners and all guides.
The engine is stripped to bare components and put into a high pressure cylindrical wash at high temperature with cleansing chemicals,
this removes all carbon deposits and debris from previous failures. From this stage the cylinder bores are checked for cracks etc.
Some may need new liners this would be at an extra cost.
The Pistons are checked and rings are then changed, connecting rods are then checked & re-honed & the crankshaft is then checked.
After this the main and big end bearing shells are replaced, the oil pump reconditioned and scavenger pumps checked.
Cylinder heads are stripped down and checked for wear, cracks and for trueness then pressure tested and the face machined.
Valve guides are then checked for wear and replaced as necessary after this valve seats are machined and valve guides are then checked for wear and replaced as necessary.
Refaced valves are re cut & the head then leak tested. The camshafts are then checked for wear and replaced as necessary.
All engines and gearboxes sold by Dal Jones Automotive are on exchange basis of serviceable units and surcharges may apply.
Any work undertaken and not completed will be charged at our hourly labour rate.
