I was Able to purchase a very large block of Model T parts and still haven't opened all the boxes. I came across this Chevy head and need help Identifying it. What year is it and did it have any applications to Model T's .?
Chevy yes,I put it about 1928. With an adapter plate you got your self a poor mans Fronty.
Single exhaust port makes it 1927 and earlier.
Here is the Jern Thunderbolt
Yep, single exhaust says before '28
Yep, with an adapter plate like Jern's, on a T block....
Yes four intakes and two exhausts and it's a cross flow head ;~)
"27 or earlier Chevy. Still can get a few bucks for it but not worth IMO what a '28 is worth as that has two exhaust ports. Nice part is you have the rockers for it, to me that is the better part of it.
Just a side note. The 27 and earlier rocker arms are not the same as the 28. The 28 had larger valves and were closer to the center line of the cylinder. The 27 back had about the same size valves as a T and were closer to the push rod side of the head. They both had the same diameter of the shaft. Check the rocker arms for fit. If they over shoot the valve guide holes they are the later 28. If everything lines up, winner!
