Re: B head sample.

I'm not sure which Mazak you mean, but I am currently running all cylinder heads in my Toyoda Horizontal Machining Center. My new fixture design allows me to make heads with less set ups. I cut it...

New B head first sample.

I just picked this up today at my new foundry. It looks better in person than in the pictures.


I have about a half dozen to make right off the bat. Probably going to be $600 the first run.

Re: B head sample.

I picked this head up from the foundry today. It is very nice, especially for the first sample. They mentioned being very interested in sampling an engine block asap. I have quite a few Winfield...

B head sample.

This is the first B head at my new iron foundry. The last foundry didn't have quality control so they had to go. Winfields, Thomas, and blocks are all slated to be cast.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Yes. I will report back after my meeting next week.



I will probably cast a 3-main iron block, a 3-main aluminum, and a 5 main aluminum this month.



Don't look for it in this thread...

Re: 8BA interest.

I doubt "no machine work" is viable, as it assumes every customer is in the same position as far as all of their parts are concerned. I have learned from other block projects that a basic block...

Re: 8BA interest.

The first step was to increase deck thickness. Cylinder wall thickness will be slightly thicker as well.

Re: 8BA interest.

I got into the Model A long before I knew the market for an 8BA was probably larger. Since I am so close to getting into regular production on the banger it made sense to back-burner the 8BA until...

8BA interest.

OK. I've been taking a break from the 8BA due to working on a new casting method for my Model A blocks that I think will make the 8BA blocks much better. I didn't want to go deeper into the 8BA...

New blocks.

I have all the sand in house to cast the next 3 blocks as I inch towards production on these things. If you are one of those who have expressed interest in the past it may be a good idea to email me...

Re: Intake manifold needed.

Yes, looking closer the distance is noticeably different. If there were a market for that intake I would make one.
