Question about Ford Laser
The maximum distortion diagonally or along length = 0.06mm
This is the shop rule.
Your cylinder head warp is at 0.05mm.
I will send it to a machine shop to CNC/milling the head.
The machine will perform a task call MAGNAFLUX.
They will inspect the head for crack(s) during this MAGNAFLUX procedure.
Over heating can cause invisible hairline crack(s).
If the cyc. head pass the inspection then they will mill the head down to specification.
I will bring the VIN number to the machine shop.
If there is any ID marking on the cyc, head you should clean and mark it so the machinist can get the correct milling spec.
THIS WILL AVOID COSTLY ERROR!
Use NEW head bolts and head bolt compound/chemical.
REPLACE all freeze plugs on the block. ALL OF THEM.
After over-heating they will expand and cause leaks.
NEW water pump and thermostat. Replace them at the same time.
Check service record for the last timing belt + tensioner change.
YOU ARE DUE FOR T-belt change at 130K-160K.
