Are Remanufactured Diesel Fuel Pumps as good as new OEM Pumps?
If you’re having problems with your diesel engine fuel pump, you’re probably looking to replace it. But with so many options out there, how do you know where to start?
You could buy a new one from the OEM, but that ends up costing more. But can you trust that a remanufactured pump will give you the same quality and reliability as a new one?
It’s a valid concern, as there are shops out there who don’t put much care into their remans, and don’t build them to OEM specifications. You don’t want to end up spending money on a pump that just breaks down right away.
Here at DFI, we take pride in our remanufactured pumps, and provide our customers with only the best quality. Today, we’re taking you through just what it means to have a part remanned and why it might be a good option for your diesel engine.
What’s the Difference Between Remanufactured, Rebuilt, and Refurbished
When you’re looking to replace or repair parts in your diesel engine, you’ll probably notice three terms thrown around a lot: refurbished, rebuilt, and remanufactured. Often, these are treated to mean the same thing, when in reality they actually refer to different things.
Refurbished, for example, refers to a product that has only had a failed component replaced and is then sold again. This is more often seen in the electronics field.
A rebuilt part will have been taken apart and had any worn or out-of-date parts replaced. The product is then put back together and tested.
Remanufactured parts, which is what we’re focusing on today, will have all the components replaced on it, and they’ll all be to the new or updated specification.
There’s a wide variation in what people consider a remanufactured part, which is why it’s important to go through a reputable shop or supplier. Here at DFI, we make sure you get the best possible reman fuel pump.
Advantages of a Remanufactured Part
When you’re considering between a remanufactured pump and a new OEM pump, it’s important to know that our reman pumps are OEM pumps. We rebuild them to the latest possible specifications, where some aftermarket suppliers do not.
A remanufactured pump should be as good as a new OEM pump, and it should have the same warranties. When we reman a pump, it gets all the latest and greatest updates. When these pumps pass on a test stand, the specification is up to the new standard.
Each pump is put through rigorous testing. Some of the testing is automated through Bosch, and some of it is done manually. When a pump passes, you can be sure that it can handle everything you’re engine throws at it.
One of the biggest advantages of a remanufactured pump is the price. You’re getting the same pump, with equal or better specifications than the new OEM pumps, for a much lower price. And your remanufactured pump should last you just as long, if not longer than a new pump.
You also have the option, with a remanufactured pump, of controlling the price a liitle bit, as well as customizing your pump. If you want specific components put in, you can have them put in. If you don’t want them, you don’t have to have them, and it can save you a little money.
