Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Installing low head advantages?

My 15 motor was pretty much shot and to expensive for me to rebuild. I bought an 18 motor that was already rebuilt. Is there any advantages to me installing my 15 low head. It's been cleaned and is nice and flat and has nice a spark plug threads. I'll would also like to install my hogs head with the ribbed peddles this winter, or should I just install the peddles into the 18 hogs head?

10% increase in horsepower is all. Heck yeah, use the low head. It'll give you 22 horsepower. And IF your T is a '15, go ahead and install the alum tranny cover w/ the low pedals.

The high head has less water volume, may not cool as well, but will look more correct than the high head. I would not change the peddles to the 18 hog's head, use your aluminum hogs head, or save it as is until you go back to the original setup.

Sorry, the low head is the one with less water volume.

The 19 engine in my 24 has the ribbed pedals installed in its hogs head. Looks really neat.
Ribbed pedals in an iron cover with the starter block-off plates. :-) I got it that way and I like it.
I agree with Dale. Use your aluminum hogs head/cover with its pedals unless it has deep issues. :-)

No big problems with the aluminum hogs head. I can do the bushing for the peddle shafts myself. Cams are all still good.
