Good Source for 4.0HO head - Look here

I recently purchased a 4.0 HO head casting #7120 for my 4.2 block from Clearwater Cylinder Head in Florida.

http://www.cylinder-heads.com/main.html

They have a reman head that included all springs, guides, 3 angle valve job, magnafluxed, decked base and a 1 year warranty. They even took my 4.2 head as the core. I found them initially on Ebay. The head cost $200 and shipping to Colorado was $44.

I spoke to a guy there who said he has sold literally hundreds of these. Attached is a picture of the head.

I haven't installed the new engine with this head yet so I cannot comment on its performance. But it should be fine.

Did they pay for the return shipping of the old head or did you have to pay for it? How much was the core charge? I will be getting a 4.0 head after Christmas. Let us know how is goes.

The core charge was $75 but this is not charged up front. If you return your core within 30 days (more time if you ask) then you are all clear. If you do not return the core in that time then they charge you an additional $75. They did provide me with a prepaid return shipping label. The net cost to me was $244.

I saw them on ebay:

I was thinking of getting one, but I think my engine is just too tired.

Re: Good Source for 4.0HO head - Look here

I'm pulling my 4.0 head that was reworked about 15,000 miles ago (magnafluxed, 3 angle valve job, decked, and water jackets sealed). I am putting in a head that has been port and polished and combustion chambers enlarged to go with the stroker short block. If anyone is interested in my head it is ready to bolt to a 258 block (or a 4.0 for that matter). I would sell for $150 plus shipping from San Diego (92109). It will be off the jeep within a week and I can take some digital pics if anyone is interested. It is the 7120 casting.
