cracks in head: turbo
Posted 18 September 2003 - 06:04 PM
the cracks go down to the valve guides. i dont think there are any oil passaged there.
i think there is a small one towards the bottom of the exhaust pfr, but it is onlt about a half inch long and ends. there is a tiny 1/8 inch crack near the spark plug hole on one of the cc's
there are no cracks on top the head or the sides. i took the time to port them, i'm gonna use them anyway, i just want to know what to expect!
the motor has both gaskets blown when i got it, only one cyl was sealed up. hopefully it lost too much compression and quit running before it let the heads get too hot

I have a set with the crack your talking about and I cut em up for porting.

i was told that little cracks bt the spark plug hole are expected, and there is a tiny one at the webbing of the exhaust port.
OH WELL.....i put the heads on anyway, well at least if they work then we wont need to throw out heads with odd cracks!
we'll see if it works........................................................
what does anyone else know?
OH YEAH, i forgot to mention these are ea82 heads

Hey miles that's the bad crack in the EA82 turbo heads. On the other side of the web is a water jacket.
