How To Scrap Engine Motor Blocks

Your old engine’s motor block can be recycled for a respectable sum of money. Even better, you can contribute to environmental protection. To understand how to properly prepare your motor block for recycling, continue reading.

Step 1: Drain Fluids 

Drain the fluids from your motor block before recycling it. Fuel, antifreeze, motor oil, and other liquids are found in engines. Make sure to drain any liquid from linked ancillary components, such as power steering or power brakes, if you are removing the block from an automobile. These fluids include hazardous substances that are bad for the environment. In order to avoid any leaks, remove the fluid. If you’ve never handled these pollutants before, get in touch with an expert if you have any questions. Our staff at Finger Lakes Recycling is committed to meeting your demands for material recycling.

Step 2: Remove Small Components 

Next, take off the tiny parts that are connected to the motor block. These are components for the ignition system, compressors, and alternators. These parts come with pricey metals. Before recycling the entire block, separate these metals. After that, we recycle the metal to create new raw materials like cast iron or aluminum. They could even be used again for completed components or automobiles.

Step 3: Bring to a Scrap Processor 

Bring your engine motor block to Finger Lakes Recycling Scrap for safe recycling and get paid for the material. For large quantities, we offer scrap metal container services.  Call us at 585-762-9080 for rates or any other questions, or contact us here.
