Think Cylinder heads - Think Ivor Searle

Superior quality

All Ivor Searle remanufactured cylinder heads undergo the same intensive remanufacturing programme, involving complete strip down and thorough cleaning.


  • All cylinder heads are then inspected for cracks and distortion to check their suitability for remanufacture.
  • All cam housings are checked and restored to specification; non-conforming parts are replaced with a new casting.
  • Bolt and stud threads are cleaned and any damaged threads are replaced. Valve guides are measured for wear and re-sized or replaced as necessary.
  • All heads are refaced to ensure the optimum surface finish specified by the engine or gasket manufacturer.
  • Valve seats are machined to the correct seat angle, width and depth.
  • Valves are measured for stem wear, head thickness, straightness, and are refaced or renewed as required.
  • Valve springs are measured for free height, compressed load length, squareness and renewed as required.
  • Cylinder heads are then assembled with new valve stem seals, valve seat seals are vacuum checked and the head is subjected to a final quality inspection and packing.


All new parts used in the process are sourced for their reliability and durability.
