The company says it will remanufacture the engine at its Middletown Remanufacturing Center in Middletown, Penn. Previously, remanufactured engines were shipped from Europe. The reman'd engines will be backed by a two-year unlimited mileage warranty, the company has announced. Orders for remanufactured D12s can be placed with Volvo dealers. The engines will be delivered as a "basic engine", allowing customer to re-use external engine components (such as alternators) from their original D12, the company said. The Volvo Reman Basic Engine will include a remanufactured cylinder block, cylinder head, accessory drive, connecting rods and oil pump. New piston rings, cylinder liners, bearings, bushings, gaskets and seals will also be included. "The Volvo D12 series enjoys tremendous success with customers who value its performance, reliability and fuel economy," said Darin Redmon, Volvo Trucks engine marketing manager - parts marketing. "Remanufacturing the D12 gives customers a cost-effective option for extending the operating life of their Volvo VN or Volvo VHD, with new engine performance."
