Jul 20, 2006 update to the Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV project car

Pulling the GTV Head

Removing the cylinder head takes some muscle and manuevering to slide it off the studs.
The shortblock shows some signs of head gasket damage, and there was quite a milkshake in the sump.
The bores are relatively free of damage and look fairly unworn.

We removed the cylinder head from our Alfa’s engine last night so we could take it and our new head to an Alfa guru. Inside the engine there was quite a lot of emulsified oil, but no rust damage to speak of. We’ll be cleaning it out, popping in new pistons, liners and bearings before it’s buttoned back up.
