Where one can get used car engines in Japan?
There are two main sources: 1) scrap yards (car recycling factories) and 2) auctions.
Once purchased from stock of engines in scrap yards, the condition of engine its' millage is unknown. In used car auctions, one can check the real mileage and condition of the car and the engine.
Akebono Co.,Ltd provides the service of purchasing the required car from auction and dismantling it. Customer can place the bid for car even if he/she need only engine from that car.
