Nice engine Dave, your chances of finding an unbroken head are slim. I would repair the head you have. They are easy to fix. Do a search on this site and you will find several threads on repairing broken cylinder heads.

Thanks, Turbo.

The issue with this head isn't so much that it's cracked, but the seats are rusted away, esp the exh. It sat for decades covered up with a stack of burlap bags. I'm going to try to cut a new seat, but it looks like there isn't enough mat'l left.

I should not clog this thread any farther. I'll start a newbie asking for help thread.
