Engine Overhaul Options

Why buy a new truck when you can overhaul your Cat® Engine?

When it comes to choosing between a new engine and an engine overhaul, there’s no one solution that applies to every company. Foley continues to perform more and more overhauls on Cat engines each year, which raises our technicians’ expertise to an even higher level. This allows our service team to provide efficient diagnoses, the highest quality service and excellent turnaround time.

Cat® certified Engine Overhauls provide you “like new” engine performance without the price of a new engine.

What Is an Engine Overhaul?

An overhaul is a service that returns an engine to like-new condition. During the overhaul process, engines are removed from equipment, completely disassembled, fully inspected and cleaned, repaired in places where repairs are needed, then tested for performance. Once the testing has confirmed that the engine is operating like a new model, the engine is returned to the equipment and put to work.

A commercial overhaul is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve equipment performance. There are significant cost savings compared to buying new and even used engines, and a Cat® engine overhaul can sometimes provide even better performance than what you’ll find with a new option. An overhaul isn’t the perfect solution for all equipment operators, but it’s important to consider engine overhaul solutions before making a buying decision.

When Is an Engine Overhaul Needed?

Engine failure is often a prompt for a commercial engine overhaul, but look for signs that your engine may fail in the near future. For example, when you experience a noticeable loss in power over time, that’s a strong indication that an engine overhaul may be needed. As mentioned above, the engine overhaul includes the removal and inspection of the engine. In many cases, this process can reveal the cause behind your engine’s power loss. The solution may even be a simple one, and there’s no need to wait for engine failure to find that solution.

Overhaul Services vs. Overhaul Kits

At Foley, Inc., we offer both overhaul services and engine overhaul kits. Our overhaul services include the many steps in the process listed above. We’ll remove and disassemble your engine, spend time cleaning and inspecting its parts and make replacements where needed. We’ll then reassemble your engine and test its performance before returning it to the equipment.

But there’s another path you can choose. If you have modest expertise or in-house resources, you can opt instead for a commercial engine overhaul kit. These kits will allow you to follow a similar process that we use when we conduct our overhaul services. In many cases, choosing an engine overhaul kit is the easiest and most cost-effective solution. If you’re comfortable working on engines, explore kits as one of your overhaul options.

As a premium option, we offer Cat’s Precious Metals in-frame overhaul kits. This option is perhaps your best one when you’re considering an engine overhaul kit vs. commercial engine overhaul service. Again, explore your options. You may find that an overhaul is a great way to get your Cat engine running as good as new.
