i need a new head for my ABL 1.9 TD t4, bought it yesterday with headgasket gone, really nice van, but i cant find a head anywhere, Someone please help me :-)

My head has basically disintegrated between the valves on 3 cylinders, and has cracked on the other. So its proper knackered!!!

i have cash waiting, and need one asap, as i currently cant get to work, due to selling my work van, to buy the long awaited t4. And now im Stumped!!!

pm me, ring me or reply if u can help!

Sorry to hear that mate hope you get it sorted soon. Can you not take it off and get it to an engine shop to see if anything can be done with the old one?

no, i dont think its even slightly repairable. Is litterally dissappeared between the valves, ill get some pics in a bit, and post them up. but imho its knackered The head is already off, and laying in the back.

Im now off out side to take some pics of here,and give her a clean and a polish, and clean inside etc. will post some pics later :-)

cheers, i have just tried these, and no answer, guess they r shut saturdays??nevermind, i'll keep trying.

Dont suppose any1 knows if all 1.9 diesel heads r the same?? My ETKA says that they all use the same casting number etc, and a mate of mine has a 1Y 1.9 diesel engine he's breaking. Said i can have the head for 30.00. If its the same casting, and what not, then i'll just rebuild that with my camshaft etc, and away we go?

Will this work??

think they are all similar, tho some earlyer heads have 7mm valve stems to the newer 8mm. dont know if this will be a problem, for 30 i think id give it a go:ILU:

why will it not fit?? i hate it when people say it wont fit, but never explain why??

I have checked on etka, and they share the same part number ,and cast number,so the WILL fit. However, there may be another reaon you are saying it wont?? can you explain please??

cheers

i think you'll agree this is beyond any kind of repair! new head needed.

I have just bought a 97 1.9td which has been fitted with a golf td engine but i also have the original head, (it apparantly dropped a valve) i havent inspected it but if you are interested i will get it checked out.
