Galvanic Corrosion in Cylinder Head. (I've Got Head Rot!)
Posted by: MoxyRamone ()
Date: February 09, 2019 05:44PM

This is my #6 cylinder area of the left bank. The cylinder had good compression when last assembled and was not one of my problem areas in my engine's health as far as I'm concerned. It is loaded with galvanic corrosion. Do you think this is going to be a problem moving forward? It will clean up, but I don't want to remove material from the head. I am really trying to not buy another head.

Opinions? Experiences?

Thanks to you all.

Nothing to worry about! Scrape it out.... not a sealing surface...

Leave the gasket in place and hit it with a 3M abrasive wheel.
