Refundable Core Charges

If you order a product with a Refundable Core Charge, your returned cores must be in a condition which allows us to remanufacture them for resale. Core charges are refunded as soon as we determine that your heads are useable for remanufacture. The refund will be issued in the form of a check that will be mailed to you.

Factors which eliminate cylinder heads for core use include:

  • heads that were previously machined too thin
  • prior and severe cracks which are not repairable
  • prior deep cracks extending below seat areas
  • prior fuel in coolant injector hole cracks
  • prior o-ringing (unless performed by UCF)
  • heads that have been drilled and tapped for coolant return lines

Many smaller cracks in the seats are eliminated by replacing the seats and are usually fine.

We can also repair some cracks in the deck surface using Lock N Stitch® pins, but are unable to repair cracks which extend into injector holes, glow plug holes, or deep into a port.

Your core must be returned within 45 days of receiving your heads. Cores received after 45 days will NOT be eligible for refund and may be returned to the buyer at the buyer's expense.

Yes, this means you may not receive your full refund if your heads are not useable to us. We need heads that we can remanufacture and would need to purchase useable cores if returned heads are unusable. If you believe your heads might not be useable, we offer the NO CORE option which reduces the price to cover us purchasing good cores and eliminates you prepaying for return shipping of your cores. You can also call or message us about your core concerns.

We DO NOT accept Chinese or any non-OEM castings for cores.

Product Availability

Products may not be readily available for immediate shipment at any given point. Delays of up to several weeks may happen at any point due to a sudden demand of certain products, limited availability of quality parts, etc… If you have a question about availability of a product, contact us prior to ordering.

Product Returns

If you need to return a product, contact us and we can discuss how to proceed and determine if there will be any associated restocking fees.

Product Exchanges
