We will introduce some technical terminology unique in this industry.

Please take a look, may be useful when purchasing used engines and used auto parts.


What does it mean ASSY?

Have you ever heard “ASSY” as a part name in the automobile business (ASSEMBLY)?
Assy is the abbreviation for “ASSYEMBLY” and means unit before it is separated down into small pieces.

It is said that each car is composed of about 30,000 parts. This is a very large number, isn’t it?

Therefore, in the process of disassembling the car, the parts may be removed as an assembly without being disassembled into small pieces.

This is because parts are often replaced by ASSY when they are repaired. If you purchase a product as an ASSY, you can repair it more easily without having to assemble it in detail.
