Default Model T speed stuff.

I was talking with someone who mentioned a few Model T speed parts and a couple that came up were a Model T Winfield head, and a Rajo OHV head. There was also a magneto drive front cover, and some kind of expensive and rare engine block, but the Winfield head was the focus of the discussion for me. I tried to find a picture of one but have had no luck. Anyone have any info on this Winfield Model T head?

Hi Everyone! Tod I found this article titled "A Look At The Modern Day Genius Ed Winfield" and on page 28 saw these two pics.

Thanks, but I have seen that one and from what I hear there is another that more resembles a stock head on the top and has a kind of crow foot chamber.



This head is pretty cool, for sure, and I would make them if there was a market. That chamber looks like it would be potent.

Apparently, I was misinformed about the cylinder head that was called to my attention. The cylinder head is actually a MILLER Model T head. I have seen pictures of the top, but not the combustion chambers. I guess this is a very rare head. Anyone seen one?
