SERVICES

Quixote Racing provides a wide range of services from FREE advice to new engine building, with the main emphasis on rebuilding engines for SCCA or Vintage.  Phone orders are usually filled the same day and shipped the following day using the cheapest methods, unless otherwise requested by the customer. German parts are used whenever possible, and since it is a “one man” hobby business, prices are still very reasonable. A complete list of services might be found on the Quixote Racing price sheet. If you can not find what you are looking for, just call or e-mail and every effort will be made to try to meet your needs. A hard copy is also available.


Head work is performed primarily in house. (see details below)

Flow testing is typically completed within a day of receiving the items and reports are provided either by e-mail or phone. There is little “down time”.

Balancing of parts- crank, flywheel, pressure plate are done individually and then as a unit so any part may be replaced if the need arises.

Rods are lightened and balanced first for total weight and then end for end.

Engine rebuilding usually costs $700 for labor and $250 for parts. This includes cleaning, checking weights, complete rebuilding of rods (resize, align, rebush) cam timing check, new bearings, seal, gaskets, setting deck height, cleaning heads, refacing and lapping valves, adjusting spring seat pressure and lift to maximum allowed. Turn around time is usually 4-5 weeks. First time customers can expect slightly higher costs as unmarked exhaust valves or those of questionable origin should not be refaced. Many times valve seats are cut beyond what is deemed “safe” (or in some cases legal) and should be replaced.  Other items found to be unacceptable or substandard should be replaced at this time. Customers are always contacted before any additional work is performed.
Typical Parts (extra)
: main, rod, cam bearings, main seal, gasket set, recondition your rods, , rod bushings, reface intake / exhaust valves,  points,  NGK plugs........................................~$250.00
