Our services

Keeping you and your auto going

We supply re-manufactured and used engines, cylinder heads and motor components. We also test, rebuild, repair and install your used engines and components. With our superior workmanship and experience, you will receive a fully reconditioned engine or component that has been ‘hot run’ and compression-tested to ensure it is as good as new. 

Used & reconditioned engines

We supply and fit a wide range of high-quality reconditioned and used engines. We source locally in Townsville and throughout Australia. We also ship our engines Australia-wide. We are able to give a range of warranty options to our customers due to the reliability of our engine sources, and our team supplies engines from Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Suzuki, Hyundai and many more.

Engine reconditioning

‘In house’ engine reconditioning is available. We are able to source engines to recondition, or we can rebuild your engine upon request. All of our reconditioned engines are on an exchange basis, and the old unit is required. New parts are used throughout such as pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, valves, etc. Our reconditioned engines are assembled bare with no bolt-on, occasionally with a new water pump and timing components.


We supply and install a wide range of gearboxes and transfers for Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Mazda, etc. We specialise in used or reconditioned manual gearboxes and are able to supply automatic transmissions as well. We recondition customer gearboxes in our workshop, and we also have reconditioned stock on the shelf for convenience, all available on an exchange basis.

Cylinder heads

We supply and install cylinder heads ranging such as Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, some Fords, etc. We are also able to machine your cylinder head-face flat in our workshop as well as perform pressure and crack testing. If your cylinder head is damaged beyond reconditioning, we can supply a new replacement for you. Along with new cylinder heads, we supply new valves, gasket sets, head gaskets, rocker arms, etc., to complete a top-end rebuild.


We have our own G-SCAN EFI scan tool to diagnose computer problems for most makes and models such as Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Hyundai, Honda, Suzuki, etc., as well as 4X4 and family vehicles. From correcting a simple ‘change oil’ code to addressing a major ‘EGR’ code, we can help fix the problems and correct the codes.

New & used vehicle components

We supply a wide range of new and second-hand operating components such as timing belts and kits, water pumps, drive belts, cooling hoses, gasket sets, etc. In addition, we supply moving parts such as alternators, starter motors, tail shafts and much more. Our team can supply fuel injection components for both petrol and diesel vehicles. We are also able to fit these components, whether it’s a stand-alone job or fitting them as extras on an engine or gearbox fit.

Vehicle servicing

From 4X4 rides to standard family vehicles to your travelling van or light truck, we are able to perform minor and major servicing. Log book servicing is available on a wide range of makes such as Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, Suzuki, Ford, Holden, Hyundai, Honda, etc. We also provide free quotes upon inspection of your vehicle.

4X4 Suspension

We team up with Terrain Tamer 4X4 Suspension and are able to provide high-quality suspension components that are tailored to our audience’s needs. We provide a wide range of leaf and coil springs, shock absorbers, hub kits and wheel bearings kits right on down to the smaller components such as bushes, nut and bolt kits, snatch straps and more.
