Quality Remanufactured For Thousands More Miles,

get-facts

A question we get a lot is what's the difference between remanufactured engines (or transmissions) and rebuilt or used engines (or transmissions). Many people confuse rebuilt products with remanufactured (reman) products, and some may even assume that a used product will be a viable replacement alternative to their failed engine, transmission, differential or other component.

With JASPER reman components, you get tolerances that meet or exceed those of the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and a nationwide warranty that, in many cases, is better than a new component warranty. Completely remanufactured... for a lot less than you might think.  But, whatever term you use for that component you're having installed in your car, truck, SUV or boat, you should make sure that you're getting exactly what you think you're getting.

JASPER Engine History, Founded in 1942

Alvin C. Ruxer, Jasper Engine Founder

"I decided the automobile business was going to be big and that I should like to be a part of it."
— Alvin C. Ruxer

Alvin C. Ruxer, was born in the Southern Indiana town of St. Meinrad.

As a newspaper article once stated, Alvin Ruxer floorboarded life's accelerator. His love of baseball was born at an early age. Although he chose business over an opportunity to play semi-pro ball, Alvin's interest in the sport never waned. In fact, he used many of the sport's basic principles in his personal and business dealings.

Alvin often jokingly said he saw opportunity in everything. As a young businessman, Alvin was once quoted as saying, I didn't have enough money to afford a bookkeeper so I married one! Hilda Ruxer was a real partner both in his business and personal life.

In addition to founding JASPER Engine & Transmission Exchange and Ruxer Ford, Alvin built an American Saddlebred horse farm that is known throughout the nation.
