Good afternoon, I recently purchased a 1.9 AHU diesel with a blown head gasket. The shop I took the head to, to be resurfaced, has asked me a bunch of questions that i cannot answer. When resurfacing the head, what are the limits, do they make thicker head gaskets for resurfaced heads or do You use a oem head gasket. New to diesel. Any info would be great. Thank you for your time.

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

this is a 1997 VW jetta TDI manual with a AHU motor
At the front of the engine, towards the right hand side, the headgasket has a tab that sticks out and will have 1-3 holes showing on that tab. The number of holes tells the thickness of the gasket. Machining the head deck will change the thickness requirement however and there is a bit of a process for determining that. The machine should should have that information though if they do much auto work
