These remanufacturing procedures are recommended minimum guidelines (with the understanding that more stringent procedures are acceptable) for use by remanufacturers of heavy-duty starters to promote consistent reliability, durability, and safety of remanufactured starters. Installation of remanufactured or rebuilt products is often an economical way to repair an application even though the products may not be identical to original equipment parts. Before processing any part, a remanufacturer should determine if the original design and present condition of the core are suitable for remanufacturing so as to provide durable operation of the part as well as acceptable performance when installed on the application. The remanufacturer should also consider the safety aspects of the product and any recommendations of the original manufacturers related to remanufacturing or rebuilding their product.
While these procedures are meant to be universal in application, various product types have unique features of dimension and design which may require special remanufacturing processes and tests that are either not covered by or are exceptions to these procedures.
