    A bit of an odd one, the head is flat to 0.1mm, (spec is 0.05-0.2mm) been over it with the phone on max magnification which shows even the smallest scratch and no cracks in the head, but all 4 inserts are cracked right through :doh: -

    I am guessing there is coolant on the other side so there are the leaks

    Some of those cheap Chinese heads are very poor. The Toyota Surf forum guys said to stay away from them if you can. I spent a bit extra (lot) of money on a new AMC one from Roughtrax. It's still going strong over 5 years later.

    @123hotchef Yes I do ! PM incoming...

    @dobbslc - agree, always prefer to buy used original if pos. Though Milner sell a lot of them so feel a bit safer that they would not risk selling junk

    Lym engineering are a good company for heads too, all the guys on the forum use lym or milners or KS international

    I am going to half agree :) The Chinese are very quick to retool and improve on a product, what was jaberwooky a year ago would have been sorted, the big problem is the amount of stock that's got to be moved on to mugs before the new gear is available. I wouldnt hesitate buying Chinese aftermarket from a decent retailer that will back/standby his products

    Replacement head on it's way thanks to @123hotchef Hotchef (the forum comes through again!)
    Milners were disappointing for a gasket set - would not ship by RM so wanted £15 and 2 days to ship it to the IOW. - Phoned Lymm engineering and bought a complete kit inc a Victor Reinz Head gasket (generally recommended as the best) for less and 24hr shipping.

    BVits here tomorrow and should be running by the weekend... (famous last words..)

    Fab !

    I was thinking this morning how few electronics there are on this engine, think there was only about 4 plugs the engine loom is tiny no common rail just a mechanical fuel pump :laughing: - lots of vac lines though.
    Pulled the scungy looking injectors that I am going to get cleaned and tested, also need a couple of glow pugs as 2 out of 4 are goosed.

    @123hotchef just bough some Lucas ones,- bizarrely I searched for the NGK reference no. stamped on the plugs turned up nothing. Made sure I got the same dimensions though as there seem to be a couple of different ones for that engine ID.

    @steviec_lj Thanks! I'll let you know..

    While I think about it, as it's an island car I had better clean out the Extra Gunge Repository valve

    I have a set of NGK glow plugs here, were in my truck for less than a year and set of used but good injectors. You can have the glow plugs FOC, pm me your address if you want them. If your interested in the injectors make me an offer
