pavlo is that all you got to do??they was placed very gently and the floor has rubberised paint applyed so its not like its rough concrete

and stockcar not shouting just to busy typing away to notice the caps lock is on

Paul has a point. No matter how good/smooth your floor is, you can very easily put a score into the heads, be it a light score or heavy score. If that score happens to be in a critical compression area, its re skim time!

You put them on the floor & then want 500 for them?
Dream on..

You can clearly see from the pictures ov the face there no damage and these was taken after they was placedon the soft floor they are now wrapped up and in safe storage we seen many top engine builders store heads in far worse conditions tere worth the asking price all day long even if they needed a skim

If your not interest I the heads can people not comment I don't go clustering up your threads please don't do it the same to mine

Matty, do these heads have any of the very common inlet/exhaust port to spark plug cracks?

Its not possible to tell from the pics and the carbon deposits would need to be removed to check for sure I would think.

Thanks Paul

Even in these pictures you can see the heads need skimming. Not that this is a problem, you would want to do them anyway.

Any chance you could explain John?

There are scratches on the head faces clearly visible (even in these poor quality shots), they have to be perfectly clean with no scratches to get a reliable seal.

You will probably find they are warped too, most alloy heads do as soon as you release the torque on heads that have been heat cycled. My own good condition heads needed a .003" skim to bring back to flat post the heads being removed.

basically even without the scratches jonh your saying they need a skim??in that case any buyer who offers the full amount we will throw in a free pressure test and skim ov the heads for free so there is no complants and no worries

paul we have inspected the heads up close with the touch there are no signs ov any cracks on these as we say these are very low milage heads and considering the above offer and being complete are excellent value

johnfelstead

I would assume they are not flat, as most times that will be the case, so a trip to an engineers to run a minimum skim would be highly recomended if you want a realiable head gasket seal. Same goes for the block faces too.

Thats really useful to know thanks John.

Sorry for the Hijack Matt, good luck with the sale

I would assume ANY second hand head needs a skim, I wouldn't assume to buy them thinking I wouldn't need to pay for a skim. But I have had heads that were clearly mistreated by the people breaking the car, and they needed much more skimming than I would have wanted.

mattybr5
10th February 2011, 11:17
so were all clear that skimming second hand heads are a must to be sure??we are offering free pressure test and skimming on these to very high standards any 1 wanting a set ov these heads are going to be sure they get excellent haeds

You need to get the bowls cleaner than that, or you could get caught out with cracks. I can see a few suspect locations on these pics, but unless they're clean, you can't really tell.

Some hairline cracks make no difference, but the buyer may not of the same opinion.

It's more common than not that the heads crack around the plug holes, doesnt apear to cause any issues on normal engines, i couldn't say if that would on a big power build.

My version 5 heads have had small cracks in them for years with no issues.

Not talking about the effect on performance Mike, it's the effect on price.

One of the pulleys is also damaged so that would need replaced.
