Help...Kawasaki cylinder head

Hi all,

I have a Ferris 1500z with a 21 HP Kawa FH641v. My mechanic told me to order a new head-cylinder#1..I did so from mowpart.com, but head did not come with valves, springs, ect. My mechanic told me they always come complete. Web site states HEAD-COMP-CYLINDER,#1 part # 11008-7024...wouldn't the "comp" stand for complete.?

Is this a mistake, or is this the way this part is suppose to come?. What other parts do I need to order? the schematics page on mowpart.com doesn't list any springs, ect. I'm confused..please help.

My dealer's site shows the part number you ordered as a bare head, Any other needed parts are listed in the valve/cam section. Your "mechanic" is mistaken about this head coming complete, Get a list of needed parts from him and order them.....

darn....is there a kit I could order? Mowpart.com under valve/camshaft is showing KIT.,CAMSHAFT-COMP..Is that what I need? I'm not sure I even needed a new head. It had no compression, guy showed me the head, oil over it and one valve wasn't sitting right he said. He told me I might as well just order a new head....Now I'm thinking maybe all I needed was the valves?

Rob, is on the money. I got caught in that scenario, ONCE.

Unless things have changed in the last 3 years or so, you have to order individual parts needed--the only thing "complete" about a head is that it does come with the guides installed.

I believe your mechanic is ill informed.

Apparently he is..I will take old head to a shop and see if it is OK. Maybe I can return new head and just buy the valves, springs, and or whatever it needs.

Question...if old head is not cracked, it should be OK..right?

For bigger picture, no compression in that cylinder..head gasket wasn't cracked..is it possible that head could be OK and something else is wrong. I believe he said piston was moving up and down.

Valve guides can walk out of their bore and cause a valve to stay open, If this "mechanic" can't figure out the problem maybe you need to find another....

If you had no compression, you may have a valve guide that has moved. Compare the heights of the two valve guides--they should be the same height.

dutch... what does the valve guide look like? I don't see anything installed on this head I just got. If they guides are installed, how would they move?

Look at part 11008A. The guide is the cylindrical part that is pressed into the head that the valves move in. They are not available as a separate part.
