Cylinder head installation advice

Thanks for your purchase!

Our installation advice for your cylinder head:

-> Work must be carried out by a trained and skilled person
-> Check that the supplied cylinder head matches the engine type
-> Check that the supplied cylinder head has no transport damage
-> Check that everything is correct with the agreements made

-> Never place the cylinder head on the head gasket surface; this may damage the mating surface or valves
-> Try to determine the cause of the cylinder head damage and fix it first
-> Check the cylinder walls and pistons for damage and remove coal residue
-> Place pistons halfway during installation to avoid contact with valves
-> Clean all parts to be transferred thoroughly and check them for wear or damage
-> Check the engine's head gasket interface for damage and deformation
-> Clean the mating surface and bolt holes, pay attention to the roughness of the block (as fine as possible)
-> Always use new bolts (when required) of the correct dimensions
->Install the head gasket of the correct thickness and type with the right side up
-> Follow the prescribed attraction couples and order
-> Make sure the distribution timing signs are correct and install new timing belts and pan/bypass rollers
-> Allow hydraulic plungers to rest for at least one hour after installation to adjust. Preferably let it rest overnight
-> Adjust the valve clearances for fixed pushers/valve plates with an additional 0.05mm margin
-> After adjusting the distribution, first rotate the engine by hand for two revolutions to make sure that the valves do not touch the piston
-> Always replace the oil, oil filter, thermostat and coolant according to the types and type indications prescribed by the factory
-> Check the radiator and water pump for leaks and operation
-> In the case of an LPG installation, always run the engine on petrol for the first 1000 kilometers and then adjust the installation
-> Check ignition setting/injection system/fuel pump
-> Take a test drive and check everything again
