Repair A Head Gasket And Other Engine Components

In the event of a head gasket failure, you should be careful to look for other signs of damage to the engine block. Overheating caused by head gasket failure can crack or warp the engine block. This can cause further damage to the engine.

There are three stages to assess whether you can repair a cast iron break or crack:

1) Can the break or crack be repaired?

Generally speaking, a small break or crack can be repaired. Larger breaks and cracks may need specialist preparation, metal filling or extra work to complete a repair. Before any work is undertaken on the part, it is best to take a digital photograph of the break or crack and send it to a specialist repair company for analysis.

They will be able to advise on the type of repair to be undertaken and the fees involved.

2) Is the break or crack accessible?

If the engine block can be removed then this makes the repair process much easier. Removing the engine block should be done carefully and in a way that retains all other fixtures and fittings (brackets, nuts, bolts etc).

If the part cannot be removed, then there needs to be consideration into how much space surrounds the part as to whether an in situ repair could be undertaken. In situ repairs are possible on larger engines, but can be very difficult to perform on smaller engines.

3) Is it economical to repair the part?

Budget is always an issue when deciding whether a part can be repaired. If the part is easy to remove and readily available as a new part, it could be cheaper to fit a new part.

Nottingham is a major manufacturing city situated in the East Midlands, whose prosperity was founded during the industrial revolution on the textile industry, in particular lace manufacture.

However the UK textile industry fell into decline in the decades following World War Two and very little textile manufacture now takes place in Nottingham.

Nottingham is home to the headquarters of many famous companies, one of the best known being Boots the Chemists.  Although Boots is no longer a research based pharmaceutical company, a combination of former Boots researchers and university spin off companies have spawned a thriving pharmaceutical/science/biotechnology sector. Biocity, sits in the heart of the city and houses around thirty science-based companies.

Nottingham receives a considerable volume of tourists, with many attracted by its nightlife and shops, by its history and by the legend of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men, with thousands visiting Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle.
