Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Les Schubert on Thursday, November 10, 2016 - 03:33 pm:

A couple of pictures of the new copper shim head gaskets I picked up today

This is for the Rajo 4 valve F head. It seems to be a popular item!!

This is for a standard flathead T, but is targeted to the person who wants to run bigger valves.
The cost is $60.00 US plus postage.
Preferred payment is PayPal.
The initial run of 22 pieces is sold out and a second run of 22 more is scheduled for next week. Payment in full is required up front.
You can contact my via the forum private message system

I should add that the next run includes some for "conventional " OHV as well as for 16 valve Roof model C and at least 5 more F head Rajo 4 valve

Wow, those are beautiful. Does "shim" mean that they are solid copper and have no core?

Robert
I am not familiar with the Rajo BBR. Is the combustion chamber not rounded like most overheads? The Roof 16 valve model C is not round. The nature of the manufacturing process being utilized allows the easy customization of the combustion chamber shape if that is what you are interested in. A picture would be helpful. We are making exactly 2 of the Roof C gasket!!
