Very nice cast iron high compression cylinder head. Unknown manufacturer as it appears the name has been removed. From all appearances, it appears to be a Ricardo. No visible cracks. Spark plug threads are in great shape $350.00 plus shipping. Mark Chaffin (951) 805-0928. Payment by PayPal (preferred) or personal check. Combine orders and save on shipping.

The head casting is very heavy with about 1/4" wall thickness on the bottom. Compression ratio works out to about 4.5:1. Over all, a very nice original cylinder head.

Thats an early Ricardo head.

Didn't the "early" have holes for priming cups ? Mine doesn't have the patent date info but has priming cups.

Thank you Ed. I agree. It's a RICARDO. I'm not sure why anyone would grind off the word "RICARDO" but, that appears to be what was done to this head.

Look closely inside the water outlet hole. I’ll bet it’s been repaired.

Ive seen several high compression heads with the names ground off, it was something that was done as a qualifying rule in early amatuer racing from what I was told.

Ed thanks for the information. That makes sense.
Tim no repair evident. Thanks for the information though.

That’s good, mark. I bought a “perfect “ Waukesha head from California a few years ago. It had 39” of weld on it. 39” !! Cost me shipping both ways. Painful lesson
