With the test complete the Engine Oil is drained and the engine is secured into its crate for shipping or collection.
These engines are available to order through A-Series Spares, please discuss your specification and requirements.
There are two surcharge payments applied to these engines. If you have a like to like engine to return to us then both of these will be issued back to you.
998cc Surcharge: £150.00
Most customers will have an engine to send back to us, and where possible we encourage this as it means that we always keep a healthy stock of doner engines to
recondition. We ask that the engines are cleaned off and drained of all fluids as our courier can refuse to collect engines that are leaking fluids.
Engine Pallet Surcharge: £50.00
Our workshops have engineered metal frames that secure inside a crate to safely transport the Engines. We are keen to get these back to save our workshop having to recreate them. These are ideal for you to secure your engine to and send back, but if you do not have an engine to send back, simply send the frame back to get your surcharge payment back.
