Before the end of the year, we reconditioned an engine for an Aston Martin DB5, James Bond replica. This beautiful and unique car was purchased with the engine problem for almost $500,000. The engine was removed and re-sleeved and welded. We modified the main tunnels to accompany a ready available bearing and rebuilt and machined up the entire engine. The pistons were custom made forged with a custom ring package to suit. The cylinder head was stripped down and welded with new valve guides fitted. We had custom made valves for it and re-shimmed the valve tappets and assemble the head.
This is now a reliable and powerful engine that suits the look of this beautiful motor vehicle.
