Any broken or missing parts are repaired or replaced.
Dodge 5.7 Engine Rebuild
Bore & Hone Engine Block
It’s time to freshen up the cylinders on this engine block, getting a nice finish with a good crosshatch.
After we clean all the gunk and scrub it, we’re ready to tackle those cylinders. Once we bore all eight, we are ready for the honing machine. Check out a few photos of the process.
5.7 Valve Job
These heads were in good shape. If you are familiar with 5.7’s and 4.7 Chrysler, Dodge or Jeep heads, you know they often drop seats or get that chunked up metal by the valves. These two were in good condition. No extra work involved. If they did need it, we would have inserted new seats to replace any dropped broken ones.
Basic Valve Job includes: Resurface, Grind Valves, 3 angle cut valve seats, New valve stem seals, Clean, and Assemble.
If needed, new guides. Any broken or missing parts are replaced (valves, springs, seals, seats, crack repair, etc.).
5.7 Engine Rebuild Kit

I didn’t take any photos of the parts by themselves, but I have a promo for the engine kit.
