Cylinder Head Reconditioning Process

On arrival we allocate a job number and the cylinder head is dismantled, chemically cleaned and inspected, checking valves and valve guides, retainer and collets condition and test valve spring pressures.

The cylinder head core is checked for height, straightness and hardness and pressure tested in a submersible pressure tester checking for any cracks or porous leaks and all threads are checked.

After inspection we prepare a report and quotation as part of the engine reconditioning process and advise you of the cost to recondition your engine which usually can save you hundreds of dollars compared to outright replacement.
