It's very common to come home from an auction with extra stuff that was in a pile along with the thing you wanted. This piece from last Saturday's sale is one of those. Looks like it came from Bedrock. If old parts could talk I guess this would have a story to tell.
The crack goes all the way from front to back.
Anybody who wants it can have it. You pick up. Or maybe I should put it on eBay with an insane Buy It Now price.
Does this qualify as a high compression head?
Put it on Ebay and say "you believe" it's from a WW1 T armoured car that was blown to pieces on the Eastern Front in Russia...no less a true story than most other things on ebay.
Ran when parked, little pitted buy it now 650.00
Needs JB Weld.
I don't see what all the fuss is about. Sand blast it, pass it through a milling machine and put it back to work.
Looks like it has a long crack from the top of the outlet back to at least #3 cylinder.
List it in the "boats for sale". It would make a dandy anchor.
Advertise as "Used Boat Anchor" , "Would be great start for building a Model T cylinder head, as shape and size of iron used for this anchor mimics a Ford head."
Boat anchor for sure.
So it looks like it needs a home with someone who is up for challenge. Maybe we should post item,s that have been saved. I labor of love to save old Ford parts. I have a block that needs the freeze cracks brazed up. Iam even thinking about using silver solder. Iam sure someone will tackle the job. Scott
Fixing that would be a potentially fun hobby.
Best way to fix it is to melt it down and recast, perhaps with Giant Power style chambers.
Constantine, Some folks like to show off there skills and some like to improve there,s What do you have to lose with a head like that? But if you can save that what else can you save? Always new ways to learn, Scott
I see yet another Republican Presidential Candidate ....
Jim just took a left turn.
It would be good to use on a cut-away display engine... Is anyone building one?
Some people say my head looks like Fred Flintstone. I don't think it's a compliment.
I've got a '25 block that would go nicely with that head.
I am totally blown away by the fact that no one has posted this picture yet so I thought I would do it.
Well somebody had to.
