    Engine Rebuilding

    Restoring Yesterday’s Mechanical Masterpieces for Today’s Driver

    For over 25 years, Black Horse Garage has taken great pride in our aptitude for restoring and rebuilding classic engines. Every engine rebuild project is carried out under the guidance of our founder, Frank Buonanno, an award-winning, master engine builder. Our team reconstructs each engine using only hand tools and special techniques specified by the manufacturer. In fact, we fabricate many of the tooling and parts no longer available.

    While maintaining the original appearance, we rebuild engines for optimized performance. With our expertise, your reconstructed engine will have more power and reliability than when it was originally built.

    A Black Horse Garage rebuilt engine…

    • Is tuned for the specific use it will see, i.e. daily driving, concours events, or vintage competition.
    • Has tolerances that meet or exceed factory specifications.
    • Breathes better thanks to a three-angle cut on all valves.
    • Has matched valve spring height and seat.
    • Has balanced electrical components.
