Midland Cylinder Heads is a fully licenced cylinder head reconditioning workshop and supplier of new cylinder heads based in Midland, Western Australia.
We offer a full-cylinder head reconditioning service in our licensed workshop.
We can supply new quality aftermarket cylinder heads, gasket sets, and head bolts.

How do we recondition a cylinder head?
Before any cylinder head reconditioning can occur, we ensure the cylinder head itself is serviceable.
To do this, the cylinder head hardness is checked, which tells us whether a head meets minimum hardness requirements. Too soft will quickly result in a blown head gasket; an entirely new cylinder head is required.
Then, we check to see if the head is straight; if not, it will require straightening, or the head may need to be replaced.
These initial checks are done when the head is dropped off to us and done in front of you.
Each head is then hot-washed and pressure-tested.
The head face is machined flat and is hot rewashed to remove any swarf.
Valve faces and valve seats are cut and vacuum tested to ensure that they seal.
New valve stem seals are fitted, and the head is then reassembled.
Valve heights for hydraulic tappets are set, or if shim tappets, the clearances are set.
