CHANGE OF REMAN CORE ACCEPTANCE FOR SHORT & LONG BLOCKS
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
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.
2) A 3126B long block core 0R7907 is returned with two main bearing caps disassembled and loose in a box with the core, and otherwise qualifies for full core refund.
3) A 3306 short block 0R9205 is returned with one connecting rod cap disassembled and a crack in the top deck face.
