Re: FS: Rajo 4 valve head

Nice looking head. Any idea of the compression ratio? Would one need to run a water pump with this setup? Bob the compression is probably pretty similar to a stock T low head. The combustion chamber isn’t small, but it cuts out the whole area where the intake valve would normally be. I ran mine wit...

Re: FS: Rajo 4 valve head

Do you have any idea what performance the engine have in horsepowers? It will depend on what cam you run, what exhaust, and whether you run this intake and carb setup I have or something different. I would guess the head by itself is worth a good 20-25. Dual exhaust or a big header and tube are pro...

Re: FS: Rajo 4 valve head

I have a dual intake with a matching pair of U&J carbs that I could add to sweeten the deal, but that would drive the price up another $1,100.

If I include the intake and the two carbs, I’d ask $5,000 plus shipping.

Re: My car is fighting me?

I would try turning your fan bracket around. You have it now where it sits a bit closer to the engine. You’ll have to take the pulley off and then you can turn it over where it will sit a little bit further away. Might still need a shim but maybe not.
