Reco Escort Heads ?

Anyone one know were to get cheap reco heads for escorts in melbourne like under 400 bucks ?

no compression in 2 cylinders. Machanic thinks it could be the head as it doesnt blow smoke. still runs but max speed is around 90.

i dont know about melbourne, but i just picked up a sierra head that needs some reconditioning (not much) and will let the car run on cats piss, oops, unleaded, for $350 in perth.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

escort head

Theres a guy in queensland that imports sierra 2ltr pinto efi unleaded engines by the container load with low to average ks,I dont have his number on me ,But he wants $250 for the heads ,they have better port design and flow better ,Look in auto action in the classified section for his number,he sells cosworth gear as well,And he will organise freight to your door

We are talking about 2ltrs heads arent we
good luck

Try FjORDFOUR at 23 Spray Ave. Mordialloc, Vic. 95871588. If not I've got a 1.6 with factory fitted Webber and manifold and a auto box as well, good cond (cheap). No use to me anymore as I'm transplanting a Mazda motor in to it. Email me if interested.

cosworth head

You can ,its the same (design)block,but dont go turboing it as you would use a 205/200 block which has better cast qualities.

Cosworth heads are very pricey if you havent already got one ,

Especially to rebuild, if you buy one buy it complete /belt/timming pullies the lot. Hard to track down otherwise
