Rebuilt cylinder head

If you choose rebuilt cylinder head, the rebuilder will use your vehicle's old part and replace just the worn components. If your vehicle's old head cannot be rebuilt because it is too worn, he/she will use a part from another vehicle (referred to as a 'core'). If a core is used, than he will replace only what is needed in the core.

There's just one glitch. Mechanical wear is relative. Before rebuilding, all of the components within the unit are equally worn. After rebuilding, some of the components are new, and some are 'used.' Although the 'used' components still function and do not need replacing, they are worn to some degree.

Such factors as heat stress and cracks, as well as other factors, cause wear that is invisible to the human eye. Consequently, other problems could crop up later, resulting in premature failure of the 'repair.'

Remanufactured cylinder head

What is a remanufactured cylinder head? The term remanufactured usually (not always) refers to a part that, for all practicable purposes, has been completely remanufactured to the standard of a new part.

Remanufactured cylinder heads are rebuilt with many parts and every part in it is serviceable. The cracks in cylinder heads are the most common cylinder heads repair. These heads are pressure tested to find leakages. Most of the heads are repaired by welding. In cylinder head rebuild, first cylinders are checked for leakages and the leakages are welded. New valve seats are installed if required. Valve springs are checked. After this, cylinder heads are resurfaced, reassembled and painted.

Usually the only component from the old head that is used is the body (or casting, usually referred to as a 'core'). And this part is only used if it is in top-notch condition, to assure longevity of the service.
Using a remanufactured cylinder head, mechanical tolerances have been restored either by re-machining, or by installing the necessary mechanical inserts to restore original mechanical tolerances. Either way, the cylinder head meets the standard for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tolerances, durability, and quality.
