So purty, I just had to post a picture of it.
Where can I buy a cover casting like that. I have a low performance version (single intake port) version called a "Laurel 40". I had it on a 4 door, sold that and ultimately got the head back. Now building a new engine for it (pressure oiled drilled T crank) which is getting a 4 speed transmission.
I picked up a Rajo cover, but it would sure be nice to have Roof cover!!!
And yes yours looks GREAT!!!
Les, I got the casting from Dan McEachern. It was not polished when I got it from him.
I did one of them and it was dynoed at 90hp when it was done, have no ideal what the rest of the drive line is but I hope he beefs that up to take it!
I have elected to use the Watts clutch on some past high performance T engines. I found that the clutch would slip if I "stood on it" in the 1500-2500 rpm range. From there up to 4500 rpm it stayed locked up. I was using T springs and at 4500 rpm the valves would float, so I had a built in rev limiter ( this was a Sherman head flathead. Top speed of around 100 mph with standard T axle ratio and Warford in straight through.
WOW, Tom that head outta shine right thru the louvers!!
Gene, no hood sides with that head. Gotta be able to see it all of the time!
Les- sent you an e-mail. Tom- nice polish job- the cover looks very nice. Although this cover was made for the Liberty 8 head, it can be modified slightly to fit the single intake 8 valve head. Actually, I think the single port head has the best shaped combustion chamber of any of the over heads. Dan
Got it thx
Can you provide some guidance on the technique you used to achieve such a nice job please???
Rajo valve cover casting now for sale!!!!
To polish it I used a special technique that I developed over time. It basically involves putting it into a box and then shipping it to Magmasters in Pamona, CA.
Hm. Sounds like a very effective method!
