Re: NOS Aluminum High Compression Rod Jensen Head

Hi Steve, attached are some pictures for you. From the bottom of the head to the top of the head bolt surface it looks to be 2 3/4 inches tall (this is to the very top, not down in the recessed part). I also have the special washers for the head bolts (photo attached). Its brand new ready to bolt on.

Re: Help ID aluminum high compression head

Guys, I found out by looking on the box that this came in that this head was made by Rod Jensen of Massachusetts in the late 1970s. I have been told that the combustion chambers are basically identical to the modern Z heads that are offered today. This head is a low style head and has the Ford scrip...

It’s a high head. I can post more pictures tomorrow. It came from an old collector and I think this was purchased some time ago. It’s a nicely made head.

I picked up this head recently with a bunch of parts, can anyone identify what this is? Who made it? The chambers look like a Z head. I may sell this in the classifieds. It’s brand new, never used. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

More photos. I tried to get a picture of the body number. It’s stamped in the wood rather than on a metal plate. It also seems to have a 4 16 before the number which probably means April 1916 like the engine which would make sense. Carb is off but it’s a Kingston Model L. I am putting a straight thr...
