Most remanufactures have chosen to adopt an assembly line philosophy. These assembly lines are usually the less skilled type technicians that do a small part of the rebuild, then pass it on to the next assembler. These type technicians are usually not the full rounded natural engine technicians, as a result 90% of their engine is assembled with cheaper labor.
Many manufactures will pin or weld blocks that have holes or cracks.
That have been under stress and heat from spun main bearings, most remanufactures will grind and build up main bearings surfaces.
Many manufactures will pin or weld cracked heads.
