Taking the chamber out to that gasket would reduce compression ratio. The aim is to get 6.25:1.

It would appear I am in need of someone to test one of these heads and dyno it if possible.

I test cut a sample chamber in a block of wood and calculations result in a 6.25:1 chamber.


I then CNC cut a pattern, and modeled the deck cover core and water jacket. The deck core and water jacket will be made from 3D printed sand for the first batch of orders, which looks to be some aluminum and some iron versions.


The pattern does not have any nomenclature on it yet, as I do not know what lettering will be put on it.


I believe pricing for these will be $375-400, maybe $425.



Sample pictures of the almost complete models and pattern are attached.

I would be interested in one of those heads. Is it aluminum? Will it come with a head gasket?

These heads will be iron, at first. I have not planned on selling gaskets with them.

I will be making a few more prototypes soon, for additional testing and dyno, and then into production.

Hi Tod,

I would be interested in purchasing one if youíve got one for a 1929 Model A. Right now Iím running a milled stock head with a custom intake. I already purchased a cast aluminum Equalizer so this new head should increase the HP a bit. Do you think youíll have something available before TROG (in Wildwood) this year?

Pete,


These are for Model T only. I have other heads for Model A's but I am having trouble getting castings due to my core shop working almost 24 hours a day and my foundries are 8 months backlogged.
