Need a set of cam caps for a TC head

PostPost by: Woodboater » Tue Feb 25, 2020 6:07 pm

Does anyone have a set of caps for a Twink head laying around that are serviceable? Message me if you do, with a price and location. I am in Texas.

They would need fresh line boring and shells, would they not?

Oh sorry, I didn't intend to give that impressions.

Perhaps you need to contact an engine builder who might have scrapped a head.
