Head swap
« on: Dec 08, 2017, 21:00:40 »
Hi all,
I have a problem with the thread on the heads where the spark plugs screw in, I think it's crossed.
I have another head I can use and after doing a quick look on a few forums it seems I can just bolt it on....
Is this correct I always assumed there was a lot more involved in this.

New gasket and reinstall the cams...I would put new valve stem seals before installing...if all the
Parts in the other head a ok should be pretty simple.

The spark plug hole is cross-threaded?  You can heli-coil a spark plug hole without taking anything apart.
