View Full Version : I Need Heads

02-17-2006, 01:59 PM
I have an 89 t-bird SC and this is my second head gasket job. And I took the heads back to the machine shop to get them checked and the are toast they say. They were five thousandths away from discard after they machined them the last time, and this time in order to get them flat agian I would have to get 20-30 thousandths machined. SO I need another set of heads if anyone can help me I greatly appreciate it.

I might have a set around too. Not exactly sure how good they will be - where at in IA are you? They came off my old motor when I blew HG's.

I'll double check this weekend if they are still around. E-mail me ([email protected]) or PM me if interested.

I have a set of used 89 heads off of an xr7. They are in pretty good shape. I'm located in Iowa City, IA. Let me know if youd like to take a look.

I also have a set that I got form a fellow that claimed only 3-4K miles or 6 months on them.

He said he'd done a valve job and had them surfaced form a blown HG, when he developed a rod knock and parted the car.

I got these heads for porting and such, but I ended up parting out one of the SCs, so I modified that set instead.

I did dissassemble the heads, and they looked nice to me, no pitting on the seats or anything, but I'm no expert.

I'd probably have the surface checked just in case.

Let me know if you are interested, and I can send ya some pics, and even re-dissassemble them to give a better look at the seats...

I'd like to get 100 shipped (what I payed for them semi-locally), but I have no use for them at this point, so make an offer if your're interested.
