Customer Question

Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX recently purchased a recon engine and gearbox for my 1.9 cdti vivaro van which i received thursday but am not to happy with the quality of the parts.
i believe that when engines are reconditioned they are thoroughly cleaned and worn componants replaced, here are a few things that are making me question the quality of this rebuild, injector chambers still full of deposits and some heavy damage from injector removal, head bolts look old, crankshaft oil seal (timing side) doesn't look new, valve stems still have carbon deposits on.
would it be possible for you to give me some advice or some more ways to check
if i have been ripped off as £1000 is a lot of money to lose.

many thanks
