EA-71 head interchange question
Posted 19 October 2004 - 12:41 AM
Will all EA-71 cylinder heads, (regardless of year), interchange with all EA-71 blocks, (regardless of year)? Are the pushrods the same?
Disregard the emission stuff, EGR , air suction ect, I can make that all work. But am I missing something? Can a 1984 EA71 take the cylinder head from a 79 1600? They physically look the same.

the late ones did.
Not in the U.S.
Our EA71s were all solid lifter. The '84 and later EA71s did have different heads though, but only in that they had the larger EA81 valves in them.

I'm hoping Richie shows up, as I don't know the specifics....
there are a few JDM EA71's around with hydraulic lifters....
