Reman is short for remanufactured. This is the process where the used component is cleaned, bead blasted, disassembled and all failed and critical parts are replaced with OEM quality parts. The component is then reassembled, painted, inspected, tested to confirm performance and supported with our comprehensive John Deere warranty.
John Deere Reman products deliver the same level of performance and reliability as new components, making them one of the highest quality remanufactured parts and components in the market. We guarantee all components are manufactured to stringent John Deere standards and produced to original John Deere specifications. They are even designed by our engineers and built by our certified technicians – using only 100 percent John Deere parts.
By choosing John Deere Reman, you can give new life to your machine. That's because we have options for all your machine's vital parts and components.
John Deere Reman has a well trained, experienced, highly skilled work force solely dedicated to producing John Deere Reman products exclusively for John Deere dealers.
In today’s dynamic business environment success is determined through maximum uptime and machine performance. These standard sets of expectations are magnified by the fact that margins are thin and completing a project on time makes the difference between profit and loss. The John Deere Reman program is designed to meet and exceed these expectations.
John Deere remanufactured products are the best value for your dollar. They are the highest quality remanufactured products available on the market and are remanufactured to extremely stringent John Deere standards. Additionally, this is all available at a reduced cost, priced at approximately 50 to 70 percent of new; however, there is no price or replacement for peace of mind.
When you are considering remanufactured components there is only one way to ensure original OEM quality: source all remanufactured parts from an original equipment manufacturer. This ensures the incorporation of the many benefits linked through remanufacturing with the invaluable presence of peace of mind. When choosing a John Deere remanufactured product you can rest assured knowing the component you need has been designed by John Deere engineers, built by John Deere trained technicians, and installed by an authorized John Deere Dealer. John Deere remanufactured components are the optimal low cost repair alternative.

Remanufacture is not the same as rebuilt or repair. The distinction is critical. Please read below and see the difference:
Replacement of failed and other critical parts with OEM parts, inspection, extensive testing to original performance criteria and supported by comprehensive John Deere Warranty
Replacement of failed parts with new parts, inspection, and partial testing
Replacement of failed parts with new or used parts. "Fix only what is broken"
What is the difference between a rebuilt engine and one that has been "remanufactured"?
There are many levels of rebuilding an engine or related component, but basically they all follow the same method. In a rebuild situation, the product is normally disassembled only to the point of the perceived failure. It is then rebuilt, reusing some parts and replacing others with new ones. Generally, parts that are reused are cleaned and visually inspected before they are reinstalled.
Remanufacturing is a much more thorough process. The first difference is that the engine or component is completely disassembled. Each piece part is thoroughly cleaned by either a bake or chemical cleaning process. All major engine parts (cylinder heads, blocks, and crankshafts) are inspected for cracks or damage using a Magna-Glo process. The part is then dimensionally compared against the original John Deere specifications for that part. Any part not meeting original factory specifications is either scrapped/recycled or brought back into conformance with spec using a John Deere-approved remanufacturing process. Only after the parts intended for re-use have passed this testing and verification process are they released for use in assembly.
For each remanufactured engine, John Deere Reman replaces wear parts, such as pistons, liners, bushing, bearings, gaskets and o-rings, are replaced 100% of the time with new John Deere parts.
How are John Deere Reman parts different from other "remanufactured" parts?
The main differences relate to the length to which John Deere Reman goes to ensure quality:
What are some of the unique processes used at the factory that are not commonly used elsewhere?
Why are John Deere Reman engines called "application specific"?
Every John Deere Reman engine model is "application specific". This means the engine will be built specifically for the vehicle for which it is ordered. It will have the correct oil pan, correct water pump, rocker arm cover, etc. You will not have to "switch out"; parts that do not fit the application from the core engine. Each individual configuration was developed for John Deere dealers as a means of reducing the labor required to replace an engine in order to get the machine back in operation as quickly as possible.
What is the difference between "outright" price and "exchange" value?
Remanufactured components are generally sold at an "outright" price. This price consists of two values: the core deposit value, and the "exchange" value. In general, outright less core value equals exchange. Because cores can have different value depending on their condition, your final exchange price may be different than Outright less the core deposit. Core valuation criteria are designed to be simple to estimate, enabling your dealer to confidently quote the final exchange price going into a repair.
How is a core's value determined?
Core evaluation is a simple, easy to understand visual process, and does not require any disassembly. The criteria for core return is available on the core return paperwork or product bulletins. The factory verifies the core credit upon return. If factory verification is different from your dealer's inspection, your dealer will be immediately notified.
Does a John Deere Reman engine require "break-in"?
Yes, a John Deere Reman engine should be treated as any other new engine. Break-in oil should be used. Refer to the appropriate technical manual for the proper break-in requirements and adjustments required during and after break-in.
Will the cylinder head require a re-torque procedure?
No. John Deere Reman engines are produced using either angle torque or torque-to-yield head bolts.Neither of these requires a re-torque procedure.
