How is a cylinder head reconditioned? The mechanic will strip out the head's componentry – valves, valve springs – and then put the head through a chemical wash to remove corrosion. They'll run a pressure test and crack test to ensure that it's still sound, then regrind the valves and valve seats. Refurbished cylinder heads will go for a few more years, saving you the costs to buy a new piece. Problems that can be repaired this way include cracks and warps.
We are equipped to fully refurbish cylinder heads including new valve stem seals & guides, valve cleanup and re-seating, repairing cracked cylinder heads, camshaft replacement etc. Price dependant on type of vehicle.
