The 4.1 litre head will not swap over! The tension is released via the tensioner on the left hand side of the block. Gregorys manuals show you how to do that.

Arn't the 4.1 head from the old 250's push rods and that and so the cam is in the bottom end were your E-series are OHC so the cam is above the head wouldn't work!

As its been pointed out. A 4.1 is a push rod motor, and a 4.0 has an over head cam.

Like trying to fit a v8 head on an i6.. chalk and cheese.
