All I need is one (1) in nice shape as pictured. Have no idea what ever happened to the missing one, that's the way I bought the car. If you have one to spare, please contact me, thank you.

Thanks Jay......

They're for priming the cylinders with gas for starting.

You are not missing one petcock but missing 3 pipe plugs! Somebody in the past added the petcocks but didn't have the fourth.

I had one of those heads with the plugs and removed them and added hardware store petcocks. I used mine as "compression relieve valves" like on an early John Deere for hand cranking and that helped. You should not need to prime the engine to start it with that head.

I added Riley Multi-lift's and that didn't work with the head due to valve clearance so got rid of the head. Yours will give you more low end power but not too much high speed. They look nice and add some value but really not functional and can be hard to start.
