Cylinder Head

Hello from the UK!

It's a long shot but I thought I'd give it a try.

I have a 2005 Ram SRT-10 and long story short, a bolt head popped off the baffle plate on the rocker cover, has been floating around and a valve spring snapped which lead to it bending an exhaust valve. It's also snapped the valve guide and am struggling to source parts in the U.K especially a valve guide. I'm unsure if they are even available or come as part of the cylinder head.

How it's looking at the moment is that I need to source a replacement right hand cylinder head (cylinders 1,3,5,7 and 9).

Any suggestions on where I may be able to find one? I've bought ignition wires and the likes from the Viper store in the past and have emailed them earlier today to see if they're able to help. Any other suggestions?

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

So, the aluminum casting of the cylinder head is damaged?
The valve-guide area is snapped off?

If it is just the guide that is damaged (not the head casting), you should be able to have that replaced at a machine shop.

PS The cylinder heads are both the same; No left/right differences.

I broke one and had it fixed at a machine shop no big deal a lot cheaper than a new head

Thanks for the replies.

I wasnít aware the guides were part of the head, I didnít dismantle the engine myself.

Iíll see if I can get anywhere with it at a machine shop.

When I was looking to source parts, everything were pack quantities. 10 exhaust valves, 10 springs, 20 collets, 10 valve seats and seals etc. Finding them has been difficult over here and thought I might have been better to just source a head.
