In a flathead or side valve engine, the cylinder head
contains parts of the valve train and the cylinder head
is bolted to the top of the block itself. This cylinder head
assembly variation minimizes moving parts inside the cylinder head
and enables simpler manufacturing and repair. That’s why these types of motors having this kind of cylinder head
were very popular in earlier motor cars and are still in use today in smaller engines. If you possess such a motor with that type of cylinder head
in your vehicle, we can fix it if it needs repair. Many older cars have that sort of cylinder head
limiting air flow’s ability to proceed in a straight manner for better motor performances. These cylinder head
designs are still in use in some of the older vehicles we still take pleasure in repairing.
No matter what type of motor, a cylinder head has to play its part to achieve full engine power. On the inside of a cylinder head, airways allowing fuel and air to pass must also allow exhaust gasses to be expelled through the same cylinder head structure. A water-cooled engine also has cylinder head integral ducts and passage ways for the engine’s coolant mixture to transfer built-up heat away from the cylinder head and the whole of the engine, reducing cylinder headmetal torque or wear and tear from exceedingly high temperatures. Fixing a cylinder head depends on the type of motor and requires special machining tools to properly fit the cylinder head to the motor’s body
For an Overhead Valve design, the cylinder head
contains poppet valves as well as the motor’s spark plugs. The cylinder head
also holds the needed space to let the air and fuel mixture to get into the cylinder, and to get out as exhaust fumes. Valves are operated by a crankshaft fitted into the cylinder block itself. Thecylinder head
also includes the valve’s pushrods and the rocker arms allowing for power to be driven to the transmission. A perfect cylinder head
will hold everything running smoothly, but if a cylinder head
doesn’t perform perfectly, the cylinder head
must be fixed, remade or changed to get back all the motor’s power. RMMOTEUR can fix, remodel or replace any type of cylinder head
in no time at all.
A cylinder head can also be found in another type of motor. This OVC design has a cylinder head also containing valves, spark plugs and intake – exhaust tracts. In this design, the camshaft is kept inside the cylinder head. These design variations are basic to cylinder head repair and only expert mechanics can do what’s right to get a perfectly working cylinder head do its job properly. So many motor and cylinder head designs exists that you’ll always be better served for your cylinder head repairs if you deal with the best cylinder head mechanics around, like the ones at RMMOTEUR, in Montreal.
