Default Cylinder head

Any 5 cylinder 10v, K-Jet/fuel injected head, shimmed (not Hydraulic) lifters.
A bare head without valve gear is fine, but it must have camshaft bearing caps.

example engine codes-
WR, KG, WJ...

But can be any other code that meets the above criteria, including normally aspirated injected heads. They generally use the same base casting.

Minor cracks between valve seats may be acceptable, subject to reviewing pics. Larger cracks which have propagated further, and deep erosion of the inlet of exhaust tracts, mating face, of combustion chamber area will be a problem.

Hanuman, I have a 2.2 5 pot head in the garage, I think an NF, will need to check. Came off an auto with 89k miles on the clock, apart from the cam cover it's all there. Can post photos if interested.

Hi, both.
In both cases, hydraulic heads based on the later base casting, thus requiring some welding mods, among other things, to make them compatible with the block.
Not insurmountable, but adds several stages to the process.

We hopefully have a solution in progress, so we'll see.

Cheers anyway.

Just be aware of the coolant channel difference in some of the castings.

WR/WN/WJ etc all appear the same, stuff like KK /KV has a different shaped channel that leaves the coolant leaking out if ones swapped over for the other.
Easily fixable tho with chemical metal.
