FS: Big valve heads for a Caveman car
Posted by: tknobby ()

I haven't started a new thread here in a while. Been busy building big valve heads among other things.

I have a very good selection of various small valve heads in various states of quality. While rooting around my stash I found a nice pair of 1960 model 80hp heads. I thought these might clean up so off they went to the local machine shop for a bath. Came back new looking.

So far I've welded the quench and flycut the chambers, removed the iron guides and replaced them with bronze units.

Today I'll be machining the seat registers for my version 1 big valve seats. The seats will be installed this coming week.

These will give a very nice boost in performance and still look original when installed on the engine. They are available. Anyone interested in a performance upgrade on their caveman car? PM me.
