  • What is head skimming?

    Cylinder head skimming is a way to resurface a cylinder head. The head is set on a moving table, and a spinning fly cutter travels across. The cutter then precisely removes a small layer (roughly a thousand of an inch) to leave behind a smooth, and completely flat surface.

  • Why would I need a head skim?

    Often when a gasket has failed, it will cause damage to the cylinder head by warping the shape. This can be barely noticeable to the naked eye, but a slight difference in flatness can cause more issues. Our expert team can get this fixed for you on a same day service.

  • How much does it cost?

    You can get your cylinder head skimmed for as little as £52.10 + VAT at CCM. Please feel free to give us a call to discuss your needs and we will tailor make a deal for you.
