What Sort Of Surface Finish Should I Have On My Cylinderhead?
There are different surface finishes for cast iron and aluminium alloy cylinderheads. The important point is that the engine reconditioner knows and understands the difference, since errors here can seriously compromise the cylinderhead gasket life. Basically, cast iron requires a rough file like finish, where as an aluminium cylinderhead needs a smooth mirror finish. Here at KVK we offer both surface finishes.
