Need 4.8 cylinderhead

Post by dietzeje » 24 May 2014 21:52

Hi,
unfortunately my 4.8 TB48DE has a haircrack in the cylinderhead due to overheating which can't be repaired.
Has anyone an address in ZA where I (or my workshop) can get a complete or incomplete, new or refurbished cylinderhead for my engine:
I am located in Namibia, there are to few Patrols with this engine on the road.

Any hints are welcome.

Regards
Jens

Hi Tinus,
I bought it used, so I am not sure. The waterpump was leaking, new one was fitted. Radiator etc was fine.
But it still lost water. Unfortunately it was not the cylinderhead sealing....
Now it is getting expensive.

VIN is WFGY61-000422, it is an imported Safari built Sept. 2003

regards
Jens
