1934 eight cylinder head
#1
Just popping in

It appears as though my 1934 eight cylinder head is cracked. I'm currently working to set up a pressure test for it. If I seal it and run pressurized water into it an do not see water seeping through the crack I plan on re-installing the head. Does anybody have a recommendation for a good source for the head gasket? Also, in the worst case, does anybody know where I can procure a cylinder head?
Thank you
Bill

Be sure to run HOT water, and depending on your setup, might even warm the head carefully with a propane torch in the area of the suspected crack.

Head gasket, 175 plus shipping.

Bill if your engine is a Std 8, I may have a head!

Thank you for taking the time to reply. Sorry its taken so long to get back to you. I tend to work on this car in spurts. I do need a head gasket. Can you describe and post a photo of what this head gasket looks like. Also, I have several assorted Packard gaskets that are just sitting on a shelf and was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to get those into circulation.

simplest way to ID is to either post a picture or count the number of head studs and advise. That should narrow it down, along with any stamped part numbers.

Yes, I still have a head gasket for your engine.

If Bill isn't interested in the head I may be, can you give me details and a price?

I do not have a 34 head (integral water outlet at front). I do have a beautiful 338813 later style replacement head if anyone needs. (or a 242511 39 head).

Easiest to contact me directly, flackmaster at sbcglobal period net
