I found these heads and carbs at an estate sale. I kind of have an Idea what some of them are but I'd like more info on them. Are these the OHV that people use as a poor mans Rajo?
I believe the head and top-middle carb are Chevrolet.
1928 2 port Chevrolet heads
There are two heads and one doesn't have the chevy mark on it, it seems different. Thanks for the help, i appreciate it.
The head looks like a Willys. What a haul for an estate sale find!!!
I sure like the liberty Mcbeth lenses!! If you decide to part with them I am interested!
The head with the intake is 1928 Chevrolet (the one that the poor man RAJO would use) the other one looks to have a casting date of 1928 so it would be a 1927 and earlier for in service replacement. If someone is just looking for "cool" it can be used also.
Nether head is overly valuable , maybe in the free to 150 range esp if not check for cracks. While the single exhaust port head does not have the bow tie it does have the clover leaf which is a casting mark on Chevrolet heads.
The Carter if it has a 2 bolt flange mount is Chevrolet. If the brass bowl is not cracked check price on ebay . The Stromberg might be Dodge. The rest of the carbs would be car or tractor.
With Jern's passing and no one stepping up to make the adapter plate, the use of the heads might be limited to selling to Chevrolet people or someone that has the adapter and no head for now anyway.
I have known several people to make their own adapter plates to use Chevrolet (and a few other) heads on T speedsters. Not something that just anybody can do without some amount of equipment. But I have given it some thought over the years, and am fairly sure I could make one if I wanted to. And I do not have a mill or large lathe myself. A drill press and a cutting torch with a full tank of oxygen would do most of the work if you could find a good steel plate of the right size.
The two intake/two exhaust 1928 model Chevrolet head is the more common and popular head for conversion to model T use. Earlier Chevy four cylinder heads come in a variety of styles, most of which also can be used. Some are single intake, some are single exhaust, I think some are both. I have seen several of them used on model Ts with great success.
According to some people I have listened to over the years, an earlier three port Oldsmobile head (also GM and similar but more powerful engine) is the best for conversion to model T. But don't ask me if the three ports were on the intake or exhaust side. Guess I wasn't listening that well. I have seen a few of them at swap meets, they look a lot like the two/two Chevy head, but with three on one side. I have also seen a couple of them being run in T speedsters. Sound good.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
When I was selling a Jern adapter plate I got a lot of responses from folks with CNC Machines who thought making the adapter would be easy....they wanted my plate for a pattern
My best friend has a CNC. Has anyone traced Niel's kit? He was a family friend and gave me the radiator and the wheels for my 15 and helped me a lot. I kind of want to put the chevy head on my car because of that.
I like the chevy head and lights and carbs real cool stuff.
Yes those are good.
28 Chevy heads with rockers. Carter carbs are also Chevy from the same Chevy year. Last 4 cylinder Chevy made was 1928.
