Unknown 4-Cylinder 16-Valve Cylinder Head


Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone could help provide any information on this cylinder head.  It's a cast iron 4-cylinder, 16-valve head, only markings on it that I am able to find are the letters "MF" as shown in the last picture.

the mating surface to the block clearly looks like Model T Ford. I think it is a Roof Overhead conversion.  If I could get a photo of the exhaust ports, I could be sure.

It could be a Roof Model B head for a Ford T. If so, the 8 round ports on the top surface of the head are the exhaust ports. It would have had two exhaust manifolds of sorts that bolted to the top...

 

If so, this is an EXTREMELY rare head...

There are four horizontal holes into the side of the chamber. You can see them from the side and just make out their presence in the underneath view.

Attached are a couple close-up pictures of the exhaust ports.  Thanks for your help.

Spark plug holes along the bottom?

The actual holes in the chamber obscured by the angle of the photo?
