Default B heads starting to...

...make their way to usefulness. These pics are from a customer that is about ready to install it.


I have one left from the first run of castings.

Looks great Tod. Pardon my ignorance as I'm sure it's obvious to most of you, how has casting improved since these were originally made? Is yours better than an original because of advances made in casting or are you just filling a need no longer being met? Just trying to learn as I have no idea other than it looks great but I hope he knows his spark plugs look bad.

I recieved mine about a week ago. Shipping was fairly quick and it's a beautiful piece of work---impressive. As soon as I get a spare cam reground I'll tear down and reassemble and post pictures from the project.

Casting process is pretty much the same except for a few minor improvements. My B head has a completely different chamber than the original, which, unless I have been misinformed, is the only high compression B head available. I am not aware of any crow's foot chambered, 7:1 B head, until now.

The casting iron formulas are likely an improvement to some degree but it depends on what the part is used for.

Thanks for the information, I wish you great success with your casting. It looks like a new penny.

You're welcome. The first batch sold out quickly. The last one is on its way to New Zealand.
