DFeeney Posted May 26 Share Posted May 26 Those of us with flat head engines are usually interested in production Aluminum heads. They have a little more CR and hence, a little more power. In the Plymouth 6 world they can go for $1200-1500. I am building a Ira Vail style early Hudson fair grounds racer using a Hudson straight 8 254 engine. The engine came with a Aluminum head which turned out to be beyond salvage. I replaced it with a good re manufactured head. I scrapped the old head today. It weighed 17 lbs and cast aluminum went for .20 a lb. That works out to $3.40. Perhaps I would have been better off to make it a "Wall Hanger" 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
