The cylinder head is made of aluminum alloy used for its high heat conductivity, and is finned on the outside to aid heat radiation. If carbon builds up inside the combustion chamber however, cooling efficiency is reduced and preigmtion, detonation, and overheating may result. Trouble may also come from improper head mounting or mounting torque, causinq compression leakage.
