Rebuilding M130 head. Where to buy parts?


Redoing a M130 straight six head and I need some parts. Currently need exhaust guides and all of the valve seals.

Any recommendations on where to get these parts? Friend of mine uses a Company called IMC. Prices seem good. Suppliers are Febi and Reinz, any experience with them? Any place else? Any dealer that helps with the older models and gives a good discount?

Also while I am in there plan getting a new timing chain, and guides. Anything other items I should do while it is opened up?

Thanks in advance for your help.

autohausAZ, and check ECS tuning once you have the part #.

autopartswarehouse has valves TRW brand

front cranks seal, easy to do while in there.

Maybe all your hoses and clamps.

Autohausaz seems to have valve stem seals and lots of other things for m130 engines.

I would probably compare their prices to that of the dealer.

Do you have part numbers? Access to the EPC?
