Common Problems with Cylinder Heads

At Benchsound we diagnose and repair all the problems that arise in cylinder heads. Some of the common problems are:-

Cracked Cylinder Head

Hairline cracks can form in cylinder heads due to overhearing and rapid temperature changes. Benchsound Ltd repairs these cracks by welding them and then milling the repair back to factory specification.

Cylinder Head Corrosion

The corrosion is more common in old cylinder heads when porous spots are formed which is usually around the coolant passages. You can identify corroded areas by pressure testing the head. This can be repaired by welding aluminium to the affected area and Benchsound Ltd has all the latest equipment to perform all these operations.

Warped Cylinder Head

If the cylinder head overheats or undergoes extreme temperature changes, extreme cylinder head warping occurs. Benchsound Ltd repairs these warped cylinder heads by regrinding the cylinder head back to the basic state of before the head cracking.
