Warranties and Policies

Warranty Information

Warranty must be purchased prior to the motor leaving Thompson Motorsports. Blocks with a standard deck height using a 4.125 stroke will not be covered under a warranty. This is because we have found that long stroke cranks develop an oscillation at higher RPMs that tend to take out the main bearings. The warranty will cover the engine for one year and unlimited miles. The warranty does not include shipping, removal, or installation - no exceptions.

If the engine is purchased from a dealer the warranty must be purchased through the dealer installing the motor and must be done before the motor is installed. Warranties are non-transferable. Once ownership of the engine transfers to someone other than original purchaser, the warranty is void. Short blocks will come with an oil pump in the crate not installed when a warranty is purchased. Premium short blocks and long blocks will come with an oil pump installed.
