    "I dont know, i think Ham's 48 needs an aluminum head!!"

    I don't theenk so. That pile of aluminum is so ugly you would have to sneak up on it in the dark. Cast iron works just fine in the '48.

    I wonder if goat aroma corrodes aluminum?

    You do have to chuckle at the stuff you see on this Internet sometimes! I think someone forgot about the exhaust. The cylinder head may flow enough, the in the block exhaust valves however never, ever will.

    Would we call that a case of F-head constipation?

    I was just messing with you!


    Any hurricane I've been around sounds like it's gonna explode at 2000 rpm, can imagine over 7000.

    I just wanted to share it with you guys, I was curious to see your thoughts. Atleast somebody was thinking outside the box with a new experiment.
