I am a believer in leaving a history behind of my Model T Fords for the next 20 owners. We need to realize that these surviving cars should now be around for centuries. Either driving or as museum displays. I need help trying to make a history of the parts on this great car I got from Ohio from an estate with the information and pictures it had toured ALL over the United States. It reportedly has a model A crank and aluminum pistons. Can anyone help me ID the head? It is NOT ferrous metal and is non magnetic. Also pictures are inverted? Sorry
Here is your photo reversed. Looks like some letters or symbols between #2 & #3 spark plugs, can you make it out?
Looks like one of Ralph and Candy Reeder's heads made in the 1990's.
Ford script in the middle, and alum this head is likely a "Z" alum high compression head.
Look for the "Z" at the water outlet end.
"Z" head in foreground. Mfg and sold by Harlon Zajicek, as developed and mfg originally by the late Ralph Zajicek.
What is the number or letter cast into the head near the water outlet? Z heads have a Z, Reeder heads have a 4.
I don't think Ralph Reeder ever made any with Ford Made In USA on them. He didn't want to pay ford's licensing fee.
The washers under the head bolts are supplied with the "Z" cylinder head. Better combustion & a bit more power..... lucky guy !
I think the first Reeder heads had Ford script.
Couldn't anyone just put washers on? My head has washers and I don't think it's anything special.
...unless a "11" cast in up by the water outlet means something.
I have owned several Reeder heads. All have Ford script and Made in USA. The only way to tell them from an original is the REEDER inside the water outlet.
I would also like a high performance head!
Please tell me how to use these washers on my head!
Oh maybe it is a head in washer!
