Hi Vic
yes these are new heads they are similar to factory 1969 912 heads i am a wholesale customer of AA and sometimes help them with their Porsche products. They are not the same as Wilhoit's i think they come from another foundry. Since i am a supplier of the neccesary parts to complete them it just makes sense for me to have the heads assembled locally under my supevision and offer a product similar to the one offered at $3000-3899. for a total of $1500. if the demand is great enought i could offer racing versions of the heads with all the trick parts and porting. If you don't want to use my parts i will have the customer's provided parts installed for a nominal charge of $50. to my sourced heads. This way we can have good quality control since all AA products are not 100% qualified.

Jacques,
What are the spark plug threads, and where are they located?
Oops: Chamber size?

Is the chamber just partially machined like the original?

I think it is amazing and wonderful the range of parts that are becoming available for our ancient cars. Even better some, things far improved over original

Hi All
This is going to be a limited time offer due to high shipping costs and availability of good quality parts to complete the heads.
I have an advantage since i sourced parts to rebuild a good number of the cores that i had accumulated.
