Wow, is that some kind of rotary valve design?

Where are the valves? Are those ports intake or exhaust? Where are the other ports? It looks as though there is a camshaft inside this head with a gear running off the timing gear in front, but are there two camshafts? I have never before seen a head like this one.

Could this be part of the San Bernardino California Ford V8 Model T??
I don't know!
Best wishes!

I'll bet it is part of a air comp set up that has one engine driven by another.

Jerry must be right, it's an accessory OHV head with rotary valves. Great find, is there a name somewhere?

I think that Jerry,s right also. Rotary valve for the intake and the compressed air goes out where the spark plug goes and has a check valve.
Maybe the other way around. Scott

Rotary valve head for Fords, operational patent prototype. Complicated, weighs a ton.

Ford timer mounts on the rear of the head, runs from the end of the shaft that drives the rotors.

Interesting. Probably the only one built. The only person who might want one would be Speedy Bill. It would look good in his museum.

How long are the head bolts for that puppy. It is interesting to say the least. Someone must have info. on it.

I saw one at the Riverside swap several years ago, but it was just the bare head with cam/valves all rusted in. $150 was beyond my reach for a novelty.

Here is another rotary valve head, also an unknown maker:

Well, it seems as though the matter has been pretty conclusively settled now that Speedy Bill is the only person who would want it. I guess I don't want it anymore, either.

LOL!

Dan,
Add me to the list with Speedy Bill!

Let me know when you want me to pick it up. Bill might be Speedy, but I live a lot closer!

Where's the water pump and what type of oil do you use?
Do you use antifreeze or water wetter?
Do you add ATF to the oil?
Are the tires round or flat?
You can only paint it black!
Don't forget to make the floor boards from the packing crate!

Stop teasing me, Matthew.
As we have learned, Speedy Bill is the only person who might want one.
All I need now is the address of his museum so I can put the shipping label on the crate and be rid of this stupid thing once and for all.
