The cylinder reconditioning process that APTEC employs differs greatly from similar services offered by competitors. The competitions' process evolved from the shiney chrome business that hasn't changed since the turn of the century. The APTEC process originated in aerospace and is proven in Indy car and F-1 racing. The APTEC process uses a proprietary formulation of ceramic composite named APTICOTE 2000.

APTEC's process is computer controlled and offers many different advantages over competitors. Every cylinder is diamond finished, the port edges are polished, the gasket surfaces are lapped on a surface plate, and the cylinder is thermal shock tested for plating adhesion. Aptec Motorsport's competitors don't have the machine tools or the technical expertise to offer optional services like exhaust valve service and cylinder head reconditioning. APTEC offers these services for a reasonable price, plus APTEC carries a stock of exhaust valve parts and gaskets. APTEC guarantees your reconditioned cylinder with a limited warranty for parts and labor.  APTEC offers a quick turn-around mail-order service to dealers, home based mechanics, and racers.

HOW TO SEND YOUR ENGINE PARTS FOR SERVICE

This is the procedure for packaging and shipping your engine parts for mail-order service;
     
1. Find a strong cardboard box. Select a box that allows 4 inches of space around the engine part.
2. For cylinder plating repair, please remove all spare parts.  We only need a bare cylinder.
3. The best packing material is 'bubble wrap'.  Take care to pack around the fragile parts of engine parts like the bottom skirt of the cylinder, the head's water fittings, or the crankshaft's threaded ends.
4. Enclose ORDER FORM. Print a Service/Repair or Big Bore Kit order form from your browser.
5. Regarding payment, you can pre-pay with a personal check or visa card. You can also have your parts returned shipped by pay prior to despatch by Visa/Mastercard.
6. Its best to send your parts by business post. Remember to insure your parts for at least £300 and get the tracking number. (This costs approx £3.60 per £1000.00 from Post Ofice). If there is any problem, you can track your package.
7. Send engine parts to: APTEC Ltd, Southbrook Road, Gloucester, GL4 3DN.
8. If you require insurance on return, please advise us when placing an order.
