We all started somewhere, whether you are an amateur car mechanic, a fan of sporty driving, you owe it to yourself to know the role of the cylinder head, but precisely what is it for?
The cylinder head ensures the closing and opening of the exhaust and intake valves by an assembly of several upstream parts such as the camshaft (s), the valve springs as well as their cups, the hydraulic or mechanical pushrods and pawls. .
The cylinder head as you can see contains a large number of parts that can be purchased from this section, so you will be able to purchase for example a cylinder head gasket. The cylinder head gasket as its name suggests is there to ensure a perfect seal of the cooling circuit and the combustion chambers of your engine. Sometimes it happens that you could see thick white smoke coming out of your exhaust or final silencer, it often happens that this head gasket is the cause. Really don't delay, because a crack in it can seriously damage your engine.
Apart from the cylinder head gasket, you will also be able to find our valve guides, reinforced timing belts, hydraulic or mechanical pawls and pushrods.
But that's not all, we also have reinforced valves with sometimes sodium treatments in order to be able to hold more heat, but also camshafts with more or less strong cam lifts. There are also our valve keys also called half-moons, they are used to maintain the valve in its housing.
If you have any questions about these parts for your cylinder head, do not hesitate to contact us by phone or via the contact page of the site.
