Cylinder head overhaul

We offer a complete test and rebuild service for cylinder heads, re-using parts where possible and replacing with new or reconditioned parts where necessary. 

Heads are remanufactured in our fully fitted workshop in Blackburn by trained professionals.  Quality and attention to detail are second nature here and all heads are supplied with valves fitted.

Pressure testing

Checks the internal structure of the engine block and head for cracks and other leaks, sometimes caused by freezing or overheating.  Prices from £28.00.
