Cummins 855 heads wanted
26.10.2010 at 22:02:51
 
G'day all! - I have a mate looking for heads for a 350 small cam Cummins. He's wringing his hands and tearing his hair out at present, trying to rebuild his 350 SC. He's gone through NINE heads to get just TWO useable ones. All the others are cracked beyond economic repair. Anyone seen any good, useable, crack-free, 855 heads for sale?

Hard to get onetrack! 855 family heads are always cracked, mate of mine had a full time job welding up reco,s for cummins, most of the s/h ones are usually buggered no matter where you get them from!

Chocs - Cummins almost certainly have them, but they want a useable head in exchange. Mate has no useable heads, so he's up for recon head cost, plus core charge ..  :'(

He was hoping that someone might have useable heads laying around the shed somewhere. He knows they are very hard to find, and he doesn't really want to pay top dollar from East Coast wreckers .. and then pay to have heads freighted .. only to find they are cracked, too ..  :'(

He's happy to pay reasonable money for heads that are guaranteed crack-free, even if they aren't reconditioned.
