I'm glad that I got my 5.9 Brumfield heads while they were still available .

What about one of Tod's new heads?

These heads (stock top crow's foot) are not available yet (testing not completed) and they are a little over 7:1 compression, which I doubt will be wanted by most Model A owners. I expect a small market for these. Winfield heads are being made regularly, however.
