Hi All
Looking for a totally knackered MK1 cylinder head for some development work.
Can have inlets snapped, valves dropped etc total scrap will do!!

Hi Dave,
Sorry, not what you want, but do have I have a good 1.5 head for sale.
I also have a very scrap Stromberg head - again obviously not what you want!

Hi Dave,

I have the Weber head that was on my 45/26R when it was wrecked in 1975. The timing chest is broken off the front of the head, but I have acquired a Stromburg head that is supposedly cracked that I intend to cut the timing chest off the Strb head and using it as a repair piece to restore the Weber one. But, I'm thinking that you'd want to cut up the Weber head so that it would not be restoreable.
