Cast Iron head
« on: March 08, 2018, 06:25:53 PM »
Anyone know of any cast iron replacement heads available for the 4d56t.  I'm going to have to replace mine this spring/summer and when I do I'll be doing a complete engine overhaul and figure a cast iron head will be so much more reliable and I can't see losing any power the engine doesn't make any as it is lol. I'm not sure if mitsubishi even made a cast unit but this engine has been around for decades so you never know.

 Maybe for a tractor but I never found one for the 4D56 or 4M40, I will say though the new Hyundai Aluminum heads are way better than the old Mitsu ones. They did some improvements so they are less prone to cracking. I ran one.

This may be a redundant question but where could I find a reputable one? And just for clarification my head has the protruding valves.

Doesn't Josh have one of these too?  Where's he get his head from?
