Default 22R head

Hello all,

Im new to the forum. I have an 81 Celica convertible(Coachman conversion) that I bought as a project car and has anti freeze mixed with the oil.

I finally got a chance to pull the head and it is shot. The water jackets are corroded into the combustion chamber. Any idea where I can fine a head? From the research I have done, it seems like it might be difficult to find one.

Thanks!

Difficult? A 22r head is super common.

There are nunerous on ebay as well. Not to mention there are quite a few shops that still work on them. Heck, you can get a 20r head on there as well if you want.

I honk at other Celicas on the road.

It has to be a 22r from 1984 or older. 1985 and newer will not work. So far I have only found one place on line that has an 84 and older head, and its too expensive.

Any 22r will work. You are thinking of the 22re. So if it says 22r, you are good.

Thanks for your input, but your wrong. Look it up. The head and block heights changed in 1985. Im sure it will bolt on, but the results will be nasty.

Thats why you see all the heads listed for sale as 1985 and newer. Its different.

Ill say it a little slower for you. Any 22R, which was still produced along side the 22RE until roughly 2000, will work. Meaning it was made at the same time.

Any 22RE will work but with a lot of difficulties.

You are looking at what vehicles they are for, not when they where made.

Maybe this will clear it up some:

The link you sent me was for a head for 1981-84 ONLY. That head will work. But any head from 1985 or newer will not work. Period! The link you provided is the same source I found for a pre 1985 22r head. I repeat, the ONLY source. And I dont want to spend that much.

1985 and newer 22r (celica, pickup, 22re....doesnt matter) will NOT work. Those are much more plentiful( better chance of getting a good deal) because they are still being made.

Please take the time to read what I just wrote. Either you didnt understand my original question or youre just plain ignorant.

Bicklebok is right. in 85, the less durable 22RE construction cot copied into the carburated 22R engines, making the parts incompatible. It's a bit of a shame, because the older 22R engines would go 400k without major engine work. the later engines required a new timing chain every 175k miles.
