Item specifics

Remanufactured: A properly rebuilt automotive part. The item has been completely disassembled, cleaned and examined ... Read moreabout the condition

Head gasket gone? Car over heated and warped the cylinder head? Want to repair it yourself to save on garage labour costs, then you`ll need to have it skimmed or risk the new head gasket blowing again.

Send me your completely bare alloy cylinder head (drop it off if you`re local or I can arrange collection) and as long as it is serviceable it will have the minimum amount of material possible removed from the cylinder face. This is a fixed price listing for a skim on a 4 cylinder head.

Prices & services

£40 for a skim on any alloy 4 cylinder head.

£30 for a skim on any alloy 3 cylinder head.

£20 for a pressure test to check the head is not cracked.

Can also repair cylinder heads service for heads that have suffered cambelt/timing chain failures. This includes supplying high quality replacement FAI inlet/exhaust valves, head gaskets set and replacement cambelt/timing chain kit. Please contact for a quote as each job varies and its impossible to list a base price.

I can offer a mail order service on skimming and head repairs if you are not local. 24hr or 48hr pick-up courier service (subject to delivery & return courier payment upfront) heads will need to be well wrapped to avoid any damage or fluid leaking during transit. Once the repair work has been carried out and paid for in full via paypal I will return the wrapped cylinder head by courier.......please note any head gaskets,belts,chains supplied need to be installed by a competent mechanic.

Any heads which are not bare enough to allow the head to be skimmed will be subject to a stripdown charge at a hourly rate. No manifolds/bolt on housing or camshafts. Some diesel cylinder heads however also need the valves removing as well due to not being recessed. On most petrol cylinder heads the valves may be left in.

How do I pay?

Payment by paypal if you want to send me your cylinder head or cash on collection (full receipt will be given).

How long will it take?

Usual turnaround is 48hrs for skimming (longer if you want the head couriered back) but all depends on our workload, we do head work for the local garages in the area so its not uncommon to have alot of cylinder heads in for work. Repair work varies due to ordering parts but usually takes around 72hrs.
