Help finding cylinder heads

Post by timmartin » Fri Jul 05, 2019 11:57 am

I would be grateful for any wise suggestions for how to find a pair of cylinder heads for my SP - good enough for Russ and Andrew Carpenter to restorer to first class condition.

They have found that my old ones have been skimmed too much in the past, and have too much porosity in the wrong places.

They could of course make the old ones work, but not really to their standards for a long life total engine rebuild.

I have already placed “wanted” posts in a couple of appropriate forums (fora?)
