This is my first post here and it concernes about just what the topic says.
In two weeks I should have a model head at my hands that can be used for model of the remake.
The material comes from same place that cosworth gets it's own alumiun. Strenght is near 340-350Nm/mm2.
I have already found a place that does the casting.
I'm going to machine every one by myself, because that's what I do for living besides rallying.
Now, is there someone who want's to get along. This type of head is not just going to pop out from somewhere if you want one.
I have myself hunted for one over four years.
The project is going to take place later this year.
I'll let one head guru to make the model for the "ports" of new casting so no porting should be needed when finished.
The pushrod system(CrMo), valvecover(Al) and manifoldplates(Al,Fe) are also made from new. CrMo is used in valvetrain components as titanium can not be used by regulations of FIA historic rules..
By the midsummerparty all intrested should contact me for to get some idea that is there many who want this head.
