MECCANO Posted December 24, 2007 Share Posted December 24, 2007 In the process of cleaning up the 200tdi head this evening I discovered under the layers s of carbon, cracks between the inlet/exhaust valves on Pot 3 that propagates about 4mm from the surface. Also cracking between the holes for the injector and glow plug, which look to go deeper. I presume the head is toast, and nothing can be done with it? When the engine was purchased it ran well. Do I reassemble it, and hold out till the head completely fails? I won’t be able to afford a new one out right... so do good second hand ones exist? Any help in this moment of despair is greatly appreciated... Makes you want a V8 Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
