Daniel R posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi all, Would anyone be able to help clarify the cylinder head part numbers for the mk1 HA engine (895cc) with water heated manifolds? Mine's a '78 with part number 052 103 373C, but I'm being offered a one with part number 052 103 373A. Is there a significant differences between these heads? I gather that most of the early heads are all the same (camshafts aside), but I'm being told the inlet valve diameter for 052 103 373A is 34mm whereas my current one is 32mm. Does anyone know if the one I'm being offered is suitable? Daniel
Good morning to you all and second go on the forum. The project is progressing nicely thanks to your help. Sub frame off and sorted, gear selector oil seal changed, wheel bearing sorted and now onto the big one - the cylinder head! Almost lost the will for this one reading the Haynes manual! Can sort the timing belt, although it is a massive faff by the look of it, but wondering how much I need to dismantle to get the cylinder head off. According to Haynes I will need to disconnect everything attached to the inlet manifold and throttle body etc and remove it with the head. Exhaust manifold is off because I am replacing the down pipe. I am wondering if I can just detach the inlet manifold complete from the head and leave it in the car. Does anyone know on this please? It looks like I could get onto all of the bolts, but have not tried yet. Kind regards. Phil
