Warranty Information

NO PART OF THIS WARRANTY IS NEGOTIABLE IN EXEPTION OF THE PURCHASE OF ANY EXTENDED WARRANTY AGREED UPON

Engine Warranty:

All machining and assembly performed by M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR, will have a non transferable, out of chassis, 12 month limited warranty against defects in workmanship. Machining performed by sources contracted by M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR are included.

*All engines have an "out of chassis" guarantee.

*If in the rare event of a problem, any labor to remove and replace the engine assembly, and/or part(s) needed to perform the removal or installation of the engine assembly to repair the problem are NOT covered under this warranty and shall be the sole responsibility of the customer. Responsibility for the labor charges to diagnose a problem will be determined by who was at fault for the engine's problem. In other words; if the problem was a result of poor machining, bad fit and finish, or bad assembly of the parts, then the diagnose & repair labor will be the responsibility of M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR. If the problem was found to be a result by the customer, (intentional or unintentional), then any and all labor to diagnose and/or fix the problem shall be the responsibility of the customer / owner.

Examples of poor machining and poor assembly on our part would be; poor fit and finish of the block, installing the wrong sized pistons, incorrect ring gaps for your application, installing incorrect size bearings, installing the front or rear main seal backwards, installing gaskets upside down or backwards, allowing clearances to be too tight or too loose for the intended application, installing the rods and/or pistons backwards, mis-torquing bolts, and so on.

Any and all parts used in (or on) engines shall be guaranteed solely by the manufacturers of those parts, (if any given or implied by the manufacturer). M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR will NOT extend, or imply, any further warranty on such parts. If engine failure occurs because of a defective part, any labor for inspections and/or tests needed to be performed to determine the cause of the failure is solely the responsibility of the failed part manufacturer and/or the customer. M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR does not "extend" or offer any further warranty than what the part(s) manufacturer offers (if any) for their components.

If a failure or problem occurs and it is determined to NOT be caused by poor workmanship or machining on the part of M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR, and was determined to be caused by the customer in any way, shape or form, then the costs of the parts, as well as the labor for the repair, including any additional charges will be the sole responsibility of the customer. Customer’s have the right to NOT continue with any additional repairs, but would still be liable and responsible for any charges for parts and labor up to that point. If a customer refuses to pay fees due after work has been performed, then the engine, and/or equipment, will have an immediate “Express Mechanics Lien” placed upon it, plus a $40.00 per day storage fee.

M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR only uses the highest quality, name brand parts for each application and in no way shall be held liable for a part’s failure due to unseen defects in manufacturing, flaws in forgings, stampings and castings or in the initial factory machining process of the parts themselves. Being that M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR does not make the parts, (unless otherwise specified), we have no control over the underlying quality of the parts and must rely on the quality, workmanship and reputation of the parts manufacturer.

Any warranty claims as a result of failure caused by a defective part must be taken-up with the part's manufacturer and will be up to the manufacturer's discretion as to the coverage and compensation. No other claims shall be covered and NO compensation will be paid out for loss of work, temporary transportation, towing charges, property damage, storage fees or for medical fees of any kind, or for ANY reason.

Guarantee / Warranty Exclusions:

M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR does NOT give, imply, nor extended ANY further warranty what so ever, other than our standard 12 month, out of chassis, limited warranty as described herein on eligible engines against defects in ASSEMBLY and MACHINING. ANY and ALL guarantees on engines will be voided if diagnosis, alterations, repairs or modifications are performed by anyone other than M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR, as we will not guarantee someone else's work or honor someone else's claims or opinions without our prior authorization first.

There is no warranty and no guarantee what so ever, on ANY used engine, engines containing used or re-used parts, containing customer supplied parts, containing parts that have been modified or altered from their original state, or on any engine receiving a “freshen-up” or a partial or incomplete rebuild, nor on engines intended for, and/or used for racing or marine use.

Any and all guarantees and warranty rights will be void on ANY engine that has been damaged (directly or indirectly) as a result of customer ignorance, neglect or abuse. This includes, but is not limited to;

--Customer forgetting to install or improperly installing the oil pump, oil pump pick-up screen or oil pump drive / or any other engine related parts that are installed incorrectly, failure to hook-up or install properly working instrumentation - such as an oil pressure gauge and a water temperature gauge. Failure to install proper gaskets, improper tuning of the engine, improper matching of parts (both internal and external), improper vacuum hose hook-ups, customer neglect, lack of sensible care and maintenance or just plain ignorance, abuse, which can include, but is not limited to, improper camshaft break-in procedures resulting in flat or damaged cam lobes and/or damaged lifters, excessive cranking of engine upon initial start-up, failure to stop running engine when a problem or “unfamiliar sound” has been noticed, over heating and/or failure to stop running engine when over heating occurs, failure to stop running engine when low oil pressure is observed, incorrect fuel type, inadequate fuel supply - (too much – causing cylinder wash down, or too little causing too lean of a mixture and too much heat), insufficient octane, incorrect ignition timing, blown head gaskets (for ANY reason), inadequate oil viscosity, failure to add zinc additive into the oil, failure to change oil and filter after initial break-in period, too much oil in crank case, insufficient crank case ventilation and/or poorly working PCV valve system, over heating, over revving, racing or extreme use, pulling loads too heavy for the engine, blown exhaust gaskets when a modified or after market exhaust system is installed or in the event of worn-out exhaust manifolds and/or pipes are re-used, and so on.

PARTS REUSED ON CUSTOMERS APROVAL ARE NOT WARRANTIED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

Oil & Water Leaks:

M&MS CLASSIC TRACTOR guarantees that all seals and gaskets are installed correctly according to the manufacturer's installation guidelines. We do not guarantee or warranty parts or labor against oil leaks in any engine where any inferior after market, used, modified or customer supplied parts are installed UNLESS a gasket or seal was installed incorrectly.

FUEL, OIL, WATER, OR ANY OTHER FLUID LEAKS NOT PRESENT AT TIME OF COMPLETION ARE NOT COVERED AFTER PICKUP.

HIDDEN INDICATORS ARE INSTALLED ON ALL ENGINES TO VERIFY OVERHEATING ISSUES! WARRANTIES ARE NULL AND VOID IF AN ENGINE OVERHEATS FOR ANY REASON. NON NEGOTIABLE!

Labor Warranty:

Labor for installing engines, transmissions, rear-ends, parts & accessories shall have a 30 day guarantee that the parts / items are installed correctly, or as specified within the manufacturer’s specifications or guidelines. Custom fabricated parts, parts that are used, modified, old, fatigued or worn out, or parts that are welded to the vehicle or used for any race, competition, or marine use are excluded from any guarantee of any kind, and shall not be covered under any warranty what so ever.

Completion Date and Time:

There is no guarantee or certainty on dates or times as to when (exactly) an engine will be completed. Custom built engines require much more time to machine, clearance, port, balance, and complete and require special ordered parts from numerous suppliers across the nation and around the world. It is common that some parts need extra special attention, such as extra machining to make fit properly and certain tasks take much longer. Also, some parts may be on back order and are not available at certain times. Some tasks can not be performed and numerous parts can not be ordered until certain tasks have been performed in a given order such as after machining, balancing or porting is done or after partial (or complete) initial assembly of the engine is done to determine such things as pushrod lengths, internal clearances between rotating parts and the engine block, ring gaps, piston skirt clearances, compression heights, head gasket thickness and so on. Because of this, no guarantees are made as to when an engine will be completed. We take no responsibility for delays in completing an engine that are out of our control, and we will not be held responsible for any losses the customer may have such as missing a race, missing a show, seasonal farming or anything else relating to a later than expected completion date.
