Volvo D12 now reman’d In North America

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Volvo Trucks North America will offer the Volvo D12 series engines as a North American remanufactured product.

Remanufacturing the Volvo D12 in Middletown, Pa. offers customers increased availability, faster delivery times and a significantly lower cost, the company says.

Customers can order Volvo Reman D12s through their Volvo Truck dealer.

Previously, remanufactured D12s for North America were shipped from Europe as complete engines.

Each engine is delivered as a "basic engine" (also known as a "long block" or "3/4 engine"), which allows customers to re-use external engine components such as alternators from their original D12.

Each Volvo Reman Basic Engine includes a remanufactured cylinder block, cylinder head, accessory drive, connecting rods and oil pump. The engine also includes new piston rings, cylinder liners, bearings, bushings, gaskets and seals.

The engines are completely disassembled and cleaned. Each component receives a rigorous in-process inspection, measured against Volvo’s original equipment and Volvo Reman specifications. All critical components and "high wear" items are replaced with new components.
