EA82 with cracked head
Posted 12 August 2003 - 06:15 PM
It is going into my Loyale which has 180,000 miles. Question is, what are the chances that the heads on that engine are still good? If they are not, I will need a single head. Where is that available and how much does it run?
P.S. I don't know what's wrong with my Loyale but it has no acceleration, probably also some kind of compression problem, likely due to wear.

do you have the headgaskets from the head, is there shiny spots relative to the carbon deposits? if the carbon looks like it has been "cleaned" away is a tell tale sign of coolant burning in the cylinder. look for sighns of "steam cleaning" and if the carbon deposits are uniform throughout the combustion chambers, you should be ok.
i have used a "questionable" head without problems. the only heads i have seen that were too bad to use, tha valve seats had come loose
if you can pull the valves out look to see if the crack goes into the intake or exhaust ports
