PREFACE

This Standard was prepared by the Standards Australia Committee on Automotive Repairs
Terminology and arise out of submissions by the automotive repairs industry, consumer and
government organizations.
The objective of this Standard is to minimize the confusion in relation to the practice of
reconditioning or remanufacturing reciprocating spark ignition automotive and industrial
engines to ensure uniformity of procedures within the engine reconditioning industry.
The terms ‘normative’ and ‘informative’ have been used in this Standard to define the
application of the appendix to which they apply. A ‘normative’ appendix is an integral part
of a Standard, whereas an ‘informative’ appendix is only for information and guidance.

cam cover, sump and oil pump. The whole presented as an assembly.
2.3 Manufacturer’s specification—specification as originally supplied by the engine
manufacturer. In instances where the after market component manufacturer provides a
different specification to suit a particular product or uprated design, then the term may be

examination whichever is applicable;
(b) had the components inspected and machined where necessary to the manufacturer’s
specifications and finishes;
(c) had new parts, as defined in this Standard, installed as required; and
(d) had the engine assembled to manufacturer’s clearances and specified fastener torque
procedures.
NOTE: This term may be applied to—
(i) the customer’s own engine being reconditioned; or
(ii) a reconditioned exchange engine.
2.6 Replacement components—new items as specified for the given application.
NOTE: It is preferable that the replacement components be sourced from a supplier who can
support their products with a warranty, the terms to be determined between the reconditioner and
