Come on, you know you want to know. I mean all ya gotta do is click on the read more link and all will be revealed. So how did we do it? Why is a better question. Well Stinky’s Aluminum head was causing all sorts of oil milky issues. So thanks to Dave VanNess who had a pre war K head that was an exact match on the shelf.
Now, removing the head was fun. Okay Jimmy did it, and I took photos. That seems to be the pattern. Hey! You dont want to see Jimmys photos. So, everyone wins.
Except when you go to get the new head gasket and realize that when you threw it in the back seat of the car, me, I messed it up. So, what to do? Get out the Jenny Craig scale! Laugh all you want. That sucker reads out some fractions. And BTW, when you are trying to loose weight. .1 of any lb is a win.
So, have I stalled enough here? I could show you more dead mice? Or shots of WECATCHEM out on the water. Like we never show those. So today, here we are. Aluminum vs Cast Iron. Drum Roll please.
So, 20 ish lbs. Would that really make a difference? now according to the catalog for 1937, it did say more compression. But with exaust blowing out the sides not sure how much that helped. Seems to me loosing 20lbs of cheeseburgers and funnel cakes is a better bet!
