JASPER Remanufactured Transmission Discovered in Project Vehicle

Ken Hooper of Blue Mound, Illinois, recently purchased a project vehicle. It's a stretched Jeep body on a 1980 K20 4x4 chassis. Ken said, "this vehicle has been driven on the road for many years, but it's also been a very dependable mud truck and still runs and drives great." Currently, the vehicle is undergoing an overhaul, the engine and transmission are still in great working order and will not be replaced. JASPER's technical support helped determine that the vehicle's transmission is a Turbo 400, remanufactured by Jasper Engines & Transmissions back in 1989. Ken said, "this transmission has lasted for many years longer than the original. Thank you, JASPER."


 

JASPER: Your One-Stop Source for Air & Fuel Components


JASPER's Diesel Division will have an additional 12,000 square feet of work space by
October 201
6.

In addition to remanufacturing a complete line of diesel engines, Jasper Engines & Transmissions offers a selection of diesel engine air and fuel system components, including fuel pumps, injectors and turbochargers.

Sales of air and fuel components has steadily increased, and JASPER believes it could be one of the company’s top divisions in the next five to ten years.

In preparation for this growth, and overall Diesel Division expansion, JASPER is adding 12,000 square feet of work space to its Wernsing Road remanufacturing facility. This project is scheduled for completion by October.

Diesel air and fuel components offered by JASPER include high pressure oil pumps, like the Bosch Rexroth Pump and Sheppard Pump, the Stanadyne DS and DB2 pumps, along with a variety of Caterpillar Pumps. Every fuel injection pump is thoroughly tested and calibrated using sophisticated test equipment.

All Bosch injection pumps are calibrated on a state-of-the-art Bosch 815 calibration stand. HEUI high pressure oil pumps are tested on a custom-built test stand to provide a live simulation of in-the-vehicle operation.


Injectors include the HEUI 7.3 and 466, the 6.0 and 6.4 Bosch Common Rail and other popular applications.

As a Service Dealer for both Bosch and Stanadyne, JASPER’s Diesel Air and Fuel Component Division employs Associates who have been trained in original equipment specifications and processes.

 

JASPER is a Service Dealer for Borg Warner and remanu­factures, and stocks, most popular Borg Warner turbocharger applications. JASPER also remanufactures Garrett and Holset applications, plus many more. A core balancer and state-of-the-art component balancer are used in the remanufacturing process of every turbocharger. This assures exact component balance in order to assure optimum turbocharger performance and life.


In addition to the air and fuel components, JASPER of­fers accessories for the very popular International/Ford 6.0L diesel engine. These accessory items include heads, FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module) and EGR cooler.

 

 

JASPER Conducts Submersion Pressure Testing on Subaru Boxer Engines


JASPER Associate Wayne Hedinger gives this Subaru 2.5L Boxer engine a submersion
pressure test to inspect for leaks.


Oil leaks have been a concern with Subaru’s 2.5L SOHC “Boxer” four cylinder ever since the engine appeared on the market in 1999.

As part of JASPER’s remanufacturing process, every 2.5L Subaru is pressure tested in a tank of water and checked for leaks, before it is live-run tested.

The heads, oil pan and oil pump are installed. All engine ports are sealed off and valve covers are attached. The unit is pressurized with 5 psi and lowered into the tank, where it’s submerged for a minimum of 30 seconds. During that time, Associates check for leaks at the oil pump seal, the cam seals, cam plug, cam cap sealing and the rear seal.

Once the engine passes this inspection, it’s removed from the tank and air dried. All the plugs and fittings are then removed. The water pump and timing components are installed; valves are adjusted and the engine is live-run tested.

Talking Shop in a Sea of Subarus


Frank the Owner of Lioe's Automotive Service and I discussing Subaru engine updates and building processes at his shop in Seattle, WA.


This week I had a unique opportunity to go on the road with some of our fine Sales Representatives throughout the upper Northwest. Hello everyone, my name is Jason Hulsman and I work in the Marketing Division for JASPER at the corporate office in Jasper, Indiana. We recently released the JASPER remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC engine and I was fortunate enough to ride along with our Reps to promote it in quite possibly the largest market for this engine in the United States.

JASPER performs a long list of updates on the Subaru 2.5L, including: stronger redesigned pistons with improved oil drainback, updated Multi-layer Steel (MLS) head gaskets, improved head and block finishes, better block sealants and sealing processes, torque-plate honed cylinders, nitrided valves, a new oil pump and much more.

Our engineers developed a submersion pressure test to ensure this engine is free of oil leaks, click "here" to view the video. JASPER Technicians also live-run test each engine and perform an additional black light leak inspection. The JASPER remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC engine is backed by a 3 Year/100,000 Mile Nationwide Warranty (full warranty disclosure is available on our website).

JASPER Offers Remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC Boxer Engine

Jasper Engines & Transmissions, the nation’s leader in remanufactured products, announces the availability of its remanufactured Subaru 2.5L boxer engine. This SOHC four-cylinder engine is available on exchange for the following vehicles:

1999-2010 Impreza/Forester
2000-2009 Outback/Legacy
2002-2007 Baja

“This remanufactured JASPER engine offers several advantages,” said Brad Boeglin, JASPER New Product Development Group Leader.  “We use multi-layer stainless steel design head gaskets, with larger embossments and coated with a rubber-based synthetic material to stop oil leaks.  Cylinder heads are installed with NEW torque-to-yield bolts to provide even clamp load and reduce head gasket failure.”

“The pistons are a JASPER-exclusive design that improves cylinder-to-wall clearance and oil drain back capability,” Boeglin said. “The pistons include a graphite coating to help prevent dry startup and piston scuffing.”

“The cylinder block is torque plate honed, a process which eliminates cylinder distortion after the head is bolted and torqued to the block,” he added.
 
Additional updates include: 100% installation of a NEW timing belt tensioner, idler pulleys, water pump and belt, which prevents the chance of timing component failure.  The engine is also live-run tested with recorded inspections of temperatures, oil pressure, vacuum and compression; assuring reliability and providing piece of mind.  A black-light inspection occurs after testing to ensure there are no oil leaks.

The JASPER remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC boxer engine is covered by JASPER’s 3-Year/100,000 mile nationwide transferable parts and labor warranty. Full warranty disclosure is available on our website, or upon request.

JASPER's Catapulting Power

These days JASPER products can be found just about anywhere. Just ask Roman's Design, a California-based business specializing in custom-built machinery. Roman's most recent activity involves the Royal Canadian Air Cadets with a contract for 11 glider launching systems as part of their glider training program. The launcher is a single winch drum built on a solid steel frame. It's powered by a JASPER Remanufactured International 7.3L diesel engine producing 325 horsepower. When placed at the end of a runway, or field, the 6,700 pound system can pull a tethered glider into the air at speeds in excess of 80 mph.
