Anyone got a non turbo diesel cyl head for 1.9 (1991 on) T4. Mine maybe a little worn. If you're breaking a van/engine with a good head let me know a price, cheers.

I wouldn't chance it bud or you might end up having something which looks decent which is not like i did (£600 money burned). Take my advice, if you value your van dont cut corners and buy new they are only £400 ready to fit with tappets valve guides and cam complete, it will even come with new bolts and a decent Elring head gasget.

AW Engineering are the people you need to talk to mate. The non turbo head might even be a bit cheaper!

I realise it might not be the best idea but i've treated myself to a new cam, tappets , guides etc and it's still losing pressure so might be a bit worn maybe, so wondered if anyone had a good one out there I could transplant my new stuff into. Hmm, anyone got a new one then?

Yep new head from those guys came first thing this morning. Spent the day transferring parts onto it and it's all back in the van. Plumbing the pipework for the cooling in tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
