I used a wrench to hold the cam in order to tight up the cam pulley.
It broke when i was tightening it up.

50 bucks shipped...the head will become even more cracked while that cheap shipping. Good deal still if someone wants to spend the time/$ getting it rewelded.

Well, I ended up buying this cylinder head last week. I have a professional fabricator from work that was going to weld the crack back up.

I just received it in the mail yesterday, and decided to tear it down to clean it. I removed the cam caps and noticed disaster:





Holy crap - this head really is junk. The exhaust cam bearing on cylinder 2 is completely smoked. The other cam bearings definitely show some stress from embedded particles as well, but the exhaust #2 is completely destroyed.

This was certainly a surprise for me. Hopefully thomas18a will make it right.

Well, I'm going to ship it back. Getting boned for $50 shipping is better than getting boned for $155.

Sometimes these deals just aren't good deals.
