TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

The heads come complete with all 16 valves and springs.

They DO NOT come with cam shaft or the hydraulic lifters.

These are auto belt tensioner heads which means you will need an auto tensioner and timing belt when you fit it. Even if your original head was a manual tensioner this head is still suitable provided you use the auto tensioner and timing belt.

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU NEED A NEW CYLINDER HEAD?

Generally you would only need a new cylinder head if your existing head is damaged or has failed a pressure test (i.e. there is a crack in the head).

The main reason for these cylinder heads to require replacement or machining is due to a failed head gasket or excessive overheating issues.

If you have removed your existing cylinder head from the engine block and intend to reuse it, the minimum amount of machining you will need to do is a skim (reface) and pressure test. Since these cylinder heads are made from aluminium, just the act of removing it from the engine block can cause some amount of warping.

If your engine has significantly overheated, and you want to reuse your existing cylinder head, it may be better to completely recondition it. This is because the overheating can cause additional damage to the cylinder head, particularly to the valves and hydraulic lifters.

If a cylinder head has been skimmed (refaced) previously the remaining surface of the head may not be enough for it to be skimmed (refaced) again. The process of skimming the head involves taking a thin layer of metal off  the head to obtain a obtain a perfectly flat surface. It is only possible to do this to a certain level until the head is no longer useable. It may be possible to use an extra thick saver shim to balance out some of the loss of height, however ultimately multiple skims with have an adverse effect on the cylinder head.

Hence, you will need a new cylinder head when:

– your existing head is cracked / failed a pressure test;

– there is damage to a critical area of your existing cylinder head;

– your existing cylinder head has been skimmed multiple times previously and cannot be skimmed again;

– the cost to machine the head to a satisfactory condition is more than the cost of buying one of these brand new cylinder heads (a full recondition will probably set you back more than these new heads).

 

WHAT SHOULD YOU CHECK FOR WHEN YOU FIT YOUR NEW CYLINDER HEAD?

When you  fit your new cylinder head there are a couple of things you should check for in your engine, particularly with the cylinder liners.

Before putting your new cylinder head on check that the cylinder liners do not appear to have cracked. You would not be able to visually see a crack in the cylinder liner as any crack will only open up as the engine gets hot, however, signs of a crack in a liner can be seen if one particular cylinder is cleaner than the others (this happens because coolant is getting into the liner). If this is the case you will need to replace the cylinder liners. We would recommend replacing all four liners, since one being compromised means the others will have also been seriously affected by the overheating.

A symptom of cracked liners tend to be a lot of white smoke when you drive, not just when the engine is started (which is normal).

If the cylinder liners do not appear to be cracked, check that they are still sat between 1 and 3 thousandths above the block. If the cylinder liners are flush with the block, or have sunk into the block, unfortunately your block will be scrap and you will need to replace it.

 

WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU REPLACE / DO WHEN YOU FIT YOUR NEW CYLINDER HEAD?

When you fit your new cylinder head make sure you use a new modified multi layer steel head gasket (MMLS), if you replace it with an original single layer head gasket your head gasket will fail again at some time in the future.

Ensure you use new head bolts when fitting your new cylinder head. The head bolts are stretch bolts and cannot be reused when they have been removed.

Tighten the head bolts in the correct sequence to the correct torque.

If your vehicle had mixed oil in the coolant flush out the cooling system with a good flush, such as Forte Bio Degreaser and Cooling System Flush, this will clean out all the oil residues in the system. Make sure the coolant is flowing throughout the whole system.

If the coolant mixed in the oil then flush the oil system out with a good flush, such as Forte Advanced Formula Motor Flush.

If your Freelander has overheated it is worth changing the water reservoir bottle cap, this can be compromised when put under excessive pressure. Check the reservoir bottle for cracks around the neck and replace if any are found. Always replace the reservoir bottle and cap with genuine Land Rover parts, the aftermarket parts do not seem to have the same reliability.
