The cylinder head mounts to the top of the engine block over the cylinders. Cavities at the bottom of the head over top of each cylinder form the combustion chambers. All modern engines are the valve-in-head design, with the intake and exhaust valves moving up and down in guides, and the valve heads resting on the valve seats to seal the combustion chambers. Ports cast into the head provide passages to the valves for the air/fuel mixture and exhaust.

    On Over Head Camshaft (OHC) engines one or two cams mount at the top of the cylinder head, while rocker arms and shafts or studs occupy the same space on Over Head Valve (OHV) engines. Coolant and oil passages are cast into the head, along with threaded holes for the spark plugs. The head seals to the block with a head gasket. In the past cast iron was the most common cylinder head material, but today almost all heads are made of aluminum.

    Common cylinder head defects include worn guides, valves, seats and valve springs that can cause poor performance, a dead cylinder due to a burnt valve, or combustion, coolant, and oil leaks from warpage or cracks. Instead of significant down time and a huge repair bill from a local machine shop, you can have your car or truck back on the road fast for less cash with a replacement cylinder head. Our heads are thoroughly cleaned and carefully inspected, and receive new valve guides, 3-angle valve seats, and new valve seals. Valve spring installed height is set to specifications and the head is pressure tested.

    A blown head gasket can cause a variety of problems depending on where the gasket fails. A gasket that fails between cylinders can cause a loss of compression and misfire. A leak from the combustion chamber to a coolant passage can cause a loss of coolant and overheating, while a leak between coolant and oil passages can result in coolant in the oil and oil in the cooling system. While precautions should be taken to ensure the head is not cracked or warped, in any case a new head gasket is in order and we can supply you with whatever kind you need, including composite and multi-layer steel gaskets.

    To ensure proper head gasket sealing, most manufacturers specify that old head bolts not be reused. These engines are equipped with Torque-To-Yield (TTY) head bolts. Unlike ordinary bolts that are stretched within their range of elasticity when torqued, and return to their original length when loosened, TTY bolts are designed to be torqued to their yield point, and will remain elongated. This has been proven to provide more even clamping and better head gasket seal. With TTY bolts, head bolt replacement is necessary whenever a cylinder head is reinstalled, so we have a large stock of these fasteners on our digital shelves.
