Sorry for the poor quality pics but i was replacing lines tonight and found these, possible holes in the head near the extarctors... i dont think the rocker cover has a bottom part to it, so it must be the head??

too hard to see, from that bottom picture it just looks like an indent in the head behind the extractor flange. if its not pissing water or oil I doubt its a hole in the head, generally if your going to get any cast material come apart (i.e hole in head) you'll get a crack in the high stress areas of the cylinder head.

1987 holden berlina 'rb20e'
From what i can tell from the pics just looks like abit of bent or twisted metal?

As i said just going by the pics it's hard to tell.

When i was in the market looking for a vl, i found a few rb20e engines that had the exact look to them, it just looked like it had been hit really hard and the metal it's self was abit err ****ed? lol

But yeah i agree if its not pissing anything out of the holes it should be ok?
