cylinder head

I want to change my cylinder head on my punto active 1,2 8 valve. I have looked on many sites and they all ask for my cast number. I give this and they say nothing in stock to match this number. dose this mean I cant put a head on with out having the same cast number. its a recon head I am after. Nothing wrong with my head I was going to have it terror cleaned but I think a recon head will be better. any advice welcome thanks...

Re: cylinder head

I'll say it again. "If it's not broke don't fix it" Why go to all that bother when there is no need unless you have diagnosed a problem with the cylinder head. Do you actually have a problem with it? Why are you so keen on a terra clean? It's only a 1.2 and they don't have startling performance so keep your money is my advice. Different if you have a particular problem so let us know what the problem is if there is one.

Re: cylinder head

Wouldnt bother with a 8v punto getting it terra cleaned
A decent service (oil / Filters / Spark / HT's)

As long as all the sensors work - the car shouldnt be that bad
If your not burning oil = Should be okay

---

Whats wrong with the current Cylinder head?

Re: cylinder head

If the thread isn't too bad you could use an expandable thread restorer, Works from the inside out) if it's bad, a helicoil.
