E12 Head Thickness Limits

Recommended Posts

Guest Anonymous

What is the limit for head thickness ? Stock is 129 mm. Factory manual says 0.5 mm maximum removal. Anyone have any practical experience beyond that ? Can you compensate with a thicker head gasket ?

Thanks for the help

probably would have worked OK with a thicker gasket. Wierd low RPM backfiring and sucking air in the exhaust and out the carb type of thing. Maybe an adjustable cam chain woulds have helped too, swapped heads and all was well.
