Author Topic: 1.2HF Cylinder head  (Read 2737 times)

I seem to have come into a 1.2HF cylinder head- 818-140 cast on the head and 1967 stamped as a casting date. I have no specific need for it as both my Zagato's are 1.3's I have no ideas as to the desirability of this item and would be more interested in a good home for it. Any interest?

It's no dampner, I am curious though about it being in 1.3 engine as I though the bore was different; 76-v-77mm. Not a lot granted but difference non the less.

Hi Phil,

I went through the same process some years ago. If I remember correctly, the best plan is to check the rest of the part number. I certainly had at least one 1.3 S2 car with an 818-140 casting.

It must be a Lancia thing - not much inventory control! I was going through a load of Aurelia heads the other day with my father some S4, some S5 and some S6. All had the same casting date and number (1954) but different machining to suit the different series.

I can just imagine the casting department going hell for leather over one side of the site to hit their bonus, with not a thought nor managment intervention for what was coming out of the gates at the other end  Grin

I wonder how many remained and were scrapped when production ended ?

That would be normal in motor manufacturing, you only changed casting & part numbers when it was no longer suitable for that model, they were usually designed with enough meat on them to allow for extended use throughout the life of that particular design of engine.
