MPS Supplied Engines

Lister, Gardner, Kromhout and Dorman models in stock

If you are looking for an engine for your project, here at MPS all our engines are rebuilt to the highest standards with full photo records of the work carried out supplied with each engine. Although all our rebuilds are done to the same high standards the majority of our rebuilds are to custom specifications specific to the customers requirements. So whether you require an engine finished for salt water marine duty, an automotive, generator or rail traction project we can help.

Our engine rebuilds start with identifying the correct engine make and model for your requirements along with the build specification you require. Once these points are agreed a complete specification is created and this is what your engine is built to, this specification includes the total cost of your rebuild so there are no surprises at the end.

Build slots are reserved on agreement of a build specification and payment of a 50% non refundable deposit. The remainder is due on completion prior to dispatch. During your engines build visit are welcome and encouraged.

So if you would like to know more or wish to book a build slot, contact us.

Do you already own a vintage engine? Is it showing its age and in need of some TLC? Here at MPS we can breath new life into your old engine taking as much care and attention to detail as we do with all the engines we supply. We can overhaul your engine or in some cases supply on a service exchange basis to minimise vessel/vehicle downtime.
As it is impossible to fully gauge an engines condition until it is stripped down, we follow a process that removes any nasty surprises for the customer.
When a customers engine arrives with us we start by undertaking a full stripdown and component clean before checking all tolerances and creating a report of its condition. This report will include the full breakdown of its condition and the costs to restore (plus any modifications/additions previously discussed). Once the listed works are agreed we undertake the restoration and return the engine to its owner ready to grace their project.

Although a very rare occurance sometime the internal condition means it is not economical to restore an engine or starting with another core engine is a more cost effective option. If at this point the owner does not wish to continue with the overhaul then a fixed cost of £425.00** is due for the stripdown and report. The engine will then be returned (In it's dismantled state) or disposed of as the owner wishes.

**Plus Return Shipping if required
