Overhead Cylinder Head Repro

Post by ModelTMark » Wed May 08, 2019 1:55 pm

Some years ago a guy was reproducing an overhead valve head, does anyone know who this guy is? He also made a dual overhead cam model T head too that I saw running at the 100th anniversary in Indiana.

Rajo Reproductions - Mark Chaffin was making new repro Rajo overhead valve conversions. I believe he sold the business to someone else though?

I believe you are talking about Dave Szumowski's version, rather than Mark Chaffin's.

Dave built a beautiful DOHC powered Model T speedster.

I believe Derek is correct about Dave Szumowski being the person you are talking about. His dual overhead cam model T is just "evil". He also made a small run of Rajo 4 valves and maybe even some 8 valve heads.
