I have nothing to do with this seller or auction. On Ebay, now. A deal to good to be true. A buy it now bid of $1,125.00, will buy you a Waukesha Ricardo head that the seller advertises as a "Wall Hanger". Dang, now the price of good Waukesha Ricardo heads, will go through the roof.
Just noticed something looking at the photos, the spark plug looks to be more over to the intake side for 1 and 4 but more in the center between 2 and 3.
Maybe its a typo and he only wants 125.00 for it. I've scored a few bargains simply by asking.
DID SOMEONE SAY RICARDO HEAD
I sell my ricardo head for little less think of the savings
Bob, I know of another one that a Forum user has and its even a better bargain. He only wants $750.00 for it, but it is supposed to be ready to bolt on and run. I bought a good Waukesha head earlier this year for $250.00, so I guess you know what I think of both prices.
Terry W Last swap one sold at 350
Mine on a motor but will be off soon as that car sold was part of the deal
Iíve got a really nice Ricardo head. Itís the best one Iíve ever seen. I would be willing to trade it for a K R Wilson pan straightening table.
Hey guys, I have a Ricardo Head that has what I call a "primer petcock". I am missing one (1) and it requires 4, would like to find one more. Now I wished I knew how to post pictures !!! Hopefully someone has a extra that I can purchase. Thank you
Someone should have one they'll send you, John. Most were replaced with eighth inch pipe plugs, as few people needed the primers.
Terry, what was the purpose of those petcocks, a direct shot of gas into the head ??? Were the chambers a little different ??? Did it add that much extra HP ??? I'm trying to justify the added bushel of money for that head !!! It's really a nice car (26' Fordor) and got it for a good price but a huge chunk of money to replace all that glass with Safety Glass.
Thanks Jay !!!
Not a great photo but this is an "early" primer cup Ricardo with the matching intake manifold - tough manifold to find !
Adds a couple horses
And little more power low end as well from my exspirances
Priming cups where shoot gas aid in starting
