How about that Model A head I showed you at Murrieta? Appeared to have higher compression than a stock head. Happy Thanksgiving!

You lookin for an aluminum or iron head? If I have my facts straight... The original Winfield model A heads were iron. Then were reproduced in aluminum starting in the 50's.

Robert came by & looked @ the Winfield head, it is not the higher compression version he is looking for. We did have a great time BSing. Robert is very knowledgeable about this stuff I learned a lot from him. here are some pics of the head.

Robert, I am going to put a B head on one of my A's which is a cheaper way to get a boost on the compression. You need a B water pump for that head though. Don't know how that compares to the Winfield.

Again if I have my facts straight...

The original cast iron Winfield heads came in 2 compression ratios. There was a 6:1 head painted yellow, and a 8:1 head painted red.

The Stock B head (marked "C") is higher compression than an A head, but not by a bunch. Probably more like 5.5:1. And don't forget to plug the two 1/4" water ports, and the notorious crack between the two holes, near the center head bolt.

There was also a high altitude head (marked "B") that used a standard A water pump. I've also heard this head called a "police head". Never seen one of these off of the car to verify combustion chamber design or ratio.

Iron Winfield heads came in green (5:1, rarely seen), yellow (6:1), and red (7:1).
A stock model A head is 4.22:1
A stock model B (marked C) is 4.6:1
The police heads(marked B) are 5.22:1
