Series Land Rover - Cylinder Head Servicing
Last month the cylinder head was dismantled and now it needs to be serviced. If your Series land Rover engine was tuned correctly but seemed to be lackng power then you can expect to see carbon deposits in the combustion chambers, inlet and outlet ports. These should be removed carefully using a blunt scaper. You should mask off the bolt holes and water passages before doing this to prevent deposits entering these areas. The cylinder head can then be washed in kerosine.
