CHANGE OF REMAN CORE ACCEPTANCE FOR SHORT & LONG BLOCKS

Announcement

AVSpare Remanufactured Products is announcing a change to core acceptance guidelines. Effective March 1, 2001, Reman will accept short and long blocks with minor disassembly but the dealer will be assessed an add charge.

Current criteria for acceptance of short and long block cores require that they are fully assembled and complete without exception (reference SELD0026 and SELD0029). Disassembled cores are rejected with no core refund. However, occasionally a block core is returned with a connecting rod or main (crankshaft) bearing cap removed, a condition that may not necessitate rejection of the core if all parts are accounted for and there is no handling damage. Reman will now accept cores in this condition to avoid unnecessary rejections back to the dealer.

The following changes will be implemented to the core return process:

1) For each connecting rod that is disassembled, an add charge will be applied equal to the replacement value of an equivalent new con rod assembly for that engine model (year 2001 pricing):

3412 160-8178 $312.40

2) For each main (crankshaft) bearing cap that is disassembled and returned as a loose part with the block core, an add charge will be applied based on engine size (medium or heavy-duty).

3) For each main (crankshaft) bearing cap that is disassembled and not returned with the block core, or for any additional disassembly beyond bearing caps, the block will be rejected with no core refund.

Add charges are intended to be used on an exception basis only. Fully assembled cores continue to be the standard of acceptability. Other core return criteria for these products remain unchanged.
