Today we present you a Volga 100 hp engine for UAZ 469B and UAZ 452 Bukhanka.
These engines are a later variant of a standard UAZ motor, and they develop 100 hp, thanks to a different cylinder heads and a few other changes.
They also have a higher, than standard resource of about 150 000 to 200 000 kilometres before a rebuild. This means, that most likely, you’ll never have to do that.
Our Volga engines for UAZ 469B and UAZ 452 come from military power generators. Although made in the 1980s, they were kept inside of KUNG radio boxes on Zil and Ural trucks.These were communication, command & control vehicles, so the generators were kept in very good condition in case of a war. A soldier responsible for one, would get in very bad trouble, if his vehicle fell out of the communication network, because of lack of power. These trucks were kept in such high numbers, that they very rarely left their garages. This means, that our Volga engines are basically unused. For all their life, they had all hoses connected, they had seen very little use, and they were regularly serviced by the soldiers.
This offer is a great way to upgrade your UAZ with a more powerful and more reliable engine at a bargain. Factory new engines like this cost about €3000 to €3300. Here you can buy an engine with over 95% of its resource for about half of that.
Of course, before sale, we do a complete service of these engines.
All of them are tested and serviced like they should be. First we twice replace oil, filters and coolant. Then, we start them and let them run for about an hour, or two to see how are they doing. We also measure compression on each cylinder, to make sure, that everything is OK. After checking all of that, we remove the cylinder head and replace the gasket underneath to a modern one, made with current technologies. On assembly, we also adjust the valves and put on a new gasket under the engine cover. New spark plugs are installed. Carburettor and fuel pump are disassembled, cleaned, put back together and adjusted, replaced if necessary.
The original shielded ignition distributor is also tested, adjusted and replaced if necessary. As well as ignition cables.
To each UAZ 469B and UAZ 452 engine, we add a complete new clutch pack!
Thanks to that, you’ll receive a complete, ready to install engine, which can be put in your UAZ on arrival. If you’re a fast, fairly skilled mechanic, you can have fun with your UAZ just a few hours later. In the product gallery above, you’ll find detailed photos showing one of the engines, which we prepared and shipped to a client. Your engine will be prepared to the same high mechanical standard. First two photos are showing the original condition of this engine, the later photos show the final product, just before packaging.
After we put everything together, we test the engine once again. Thanks to that, we can give 12 months warranty on all of our UAZ 469B and UAZ 452 engines.

We service these engines after a client’s order, to make sure, that they are in the best possible condition and can be immediately mounted in your car. That is why shipping time is up to 10 works days.
