Our Remanufacturing Process in Langley
Quality starts at the core. Gears are first cleaned in our environmentally friendly parts washer, and then blasted in our automated sandblaster. The gear (if suitable for rebuilding) is dismantled, and all parts are re-washed and cleaned again, before being examined and measured to ensure that the parts are within tolerances. Contact us to learn more about our remanufacturing process in Langley.
Please note that fully 60% of all pitman shafts are discarded due to pitted seal surface or worn teeth. We use only new shafts.
All valves are totally dismantled and checked for wear, and their internal seals are always replaced. Other rebuilders will pre-test gears to avoid this time-consuming step in the rebuilding process. However, we remanufacture gears to the OEM specifications, and we long ago determined that it was one of the most necessary steps to avoid input seal leaks and torsion bar weeps.
As the gear is being reassembled, all critical safety procedures are checked and then double-checked by another technician. No chances are taken as the safety is paramount and “good enough” won’t do. All seals are replaced as the gear is being rebuilt. All adjustments and settings are performed by the technicians who have serviced literally thousands of gears.
