Thread: Machining head in 2.0 to 2.2 conversion

    Machining head in 2.0 to 2.2 conversion

    Bruce says the head needs to be machined to accept the different head gasket used on the 2.2. I am using the stock 2.0 S heads. Is that correct and what sort of machining is needed?? I now the combustion chamber needs to altered for the bigger pistons.

    The '70 on engines use a different cylinder-to-cylinder head gasket and sealing surface. Your '69 heads must be flycut to match the 2.2 cylinders. Do you have a copy of B. Anderson's Performance Handbook?

    Yes, that's where I read about the gasket change. I just wondered if the gasket machining was required or preferred.
