Engine bay fire
« on: April 04, 2021, 02:43:49 PM »
Just wondering in the event of an engine bay fire on a 3.0 V6 Alfa, would the heads be salvageable? All the plastic and rubber bits have melted (Intake runners and rubber to plenum looks ok) but wasnít sure if the heads and valves might be ok? Was looking at removing the heads if they were remotely salvageable but didnít want to waste my time if the general consensus was that the engine is cactus.
Thanks 😊

Pulled front head - looks ok so far. Might be ok to salvage the heads  :)
