For Sale is a RAJO Head just pulled off a car that has sat for some twenty years. The new owner prefers the simplicity of a side valve, so all the RAJO parts are for sale.
The head is an eight vale and complete with valves, springs, rocker arms, push rods, valve cover and oiling pad. There are eight adapters to go on the tappets to hold the push rods in position. The inlet manifold is quite substantial and has a Stromberg OE-1 carb. The exhaust manifold is included.
The pistons are included and are quite interesting in that they are aluminum, use two wide rings and one oil control ring. They are marked as “ KANYSKOR PISTON CO CIN O” and have a patent marking of “PATD 12-26-24”
Here are some pictures
As far as I can tell it is used but has not been abused. The head will need good Babbitt in the mains and rods. This engine failed as the crankshaft had too much end play and it destroyed the side Babbitt on the rods. Also one of the homemade oil paddles failed and rattled around for a little while.
We are asking $3300 obo plus shipping.
I may be able to deliver to the west coast or Richmond over the next few months or you can pick it up here in Southern California.
