Return Policy

Core Returns

Core returns are required within two weeks of the date of delivery on any remanufactured SBT product. All cores, crankshafts or other exchange parts shipped to SBT become the property of SBT.

SBT charges round trip shipping and handling if a core is due and provides a return airbill with your purchase of any remanufactured product. Use the original packaging and the prepaid airbill for the return shipping of your old core, crankshaft or other exchange part to SBT.

To schedule a pickup from the assigned carrier,
call and speak to a customer service representative from the carrier and request a pickup from your location:

Federal Express: 1-800-GO-FED-EX

  • Receipt of an SBT remanufactured engine, crankshaft, cylinder set, rotary cover, counterbalance shaft or any other product designated by SBT as requiring to be returned as an exchange constitutes an agreement to return the old "core"product.
  • Cores subject to return should be packaged in the SBT box that your remanufactured product arrives in. Damages resulting from improper packaging of cores or other exchange parts are the responsibility of the Buyer and may result in additional damage charges.
  • The Buyer's Core must be in transit to SBT within two weeks after the receipt of your Remanufactured SBT product. If the SBT provided return airbill is not used, Buyer must notify SBT with a tracking number to confirm the return of the required core.
  • All cores received must be of the same make and model of the parts purchased from SBT. All Cores must be received by SBT in a rebuildable condition. SBT reserves the right to charge the purchaser additional fees if the returned core meets any of the following conditions:
    • Cracked or damaged aluminum on cores, requiring replacement or additional processing before rebuilding can occur.
    • Missing Parts.
    • Aftermarket or Modified Parts.
    • Extensive damage that prohibits reasonable rebuilding.

In the event the core you are returning meets one of the above conditions, SBT will assess additional fees. Any charges assessed may be reversed with the receipt by SBT of replacement parts. If you would like an estimate of additional fees prior to returning your core, you can take digital photos of any damages on the core you are returning, and email them to:

SBT will assess the pictures for any additional charges that may apply and reply to you within 24 hours. Please note, this is an initial assessment only and may change once the actual item is received and physically inspected at our facility.

  • Each Engine Core NOT returned within the two week period will be charged a $100 per week nonrefundable late fee.
  • Each Crankshaft core or other part NOT returned within the two week period will be charged a $25.00 per week nonrefundable late fee.
  • Late fees accessed for cores, crankshafts or other exchange parts are due immediately, become a condition of your original purchase, and are subject to payment accordingly.
  • SBT is not responsible for any extra parts left on your core. In the event that extra parts are received on your core return, SBT will assess additional labor charges to remove the items and discard them. Extra parts cannot be returned to you.

In the event that the product you would like to return has been used, partially installed, damaged or otherwise not subject to resale, please follow the Warranty Return procedure.

The following steps outline the procedure for requesting the return of a new product:
