    1950 P20 218 put a 1956 P28 Head on it.

    Hey Guys so I grabbed my 230 head this afternoon and I realized I was wrong it does have the bump (I think) I didn't realize it was so small. So I will pull the 218 head and use it but in the meantime I measured this one and it appears to be around 1-13/16" is it way shaved down? See photos is it odd that the chamber is way smaller than the gasket? seems odd? I've never seen one from below. Thanks guys this has been real helpful!

    Sorry guys last question for tonight! Can pretty much any machine shop handle this work? Or should I search for someone knowledgeable about these old motors? I’m in NC happy to travel if it means someone that knows what there doing! And willing to pay for quality! Thanks

    Wow thanks for sharing! I don’t think I’m loosing quite that much oil but that seems to be what’s happening on my end. I have the gasket and the time I’ll more than likely pull it and get it machined and eliminate that part of the equation! Thanks again!

    No hump on either head. Cool! That’s good to know! There isn’t any coolant in the oil or anything. Or leaking you could just see some seeping at the edge Of the head on the side above the valves. Figured it had to be head gasket? I was afraid to tighten it anymore that it already is but it’s unknown what the previous owner did.

    It runs like a top. No coolant leak it’s more of you can see a tiny bit of seeping of oil I assume on the side of the head. I haven’t done a compression check yet. On this edge see photo. Hey just a note the head isn’t currently off. The one on the 230 is but not the 218. It runs fine with very minimal leakage just know it’s gonng to have to be done but didnt know if there was a benefit to using the 230 head! Any threads you could point me to would be great! It seems like I’ve read several that discuss it but none that talk about the outcome! Thanks

  7. Hi, I have a 1950 Plymouth P20 in my 1948 Dodge B-1 C Barnfind. I have it running really well but I am noticing some leakage around the head. I appears there may be a gap and it may be a bit warped. I have read so much about 230 heads yes or no shave it down yes or no. Anyone have any real life experience? I am new to all of this and I want to do it right but not spend tons of cash. I would prefer to take the 230 head to the machine shop because its off and ready to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a dual carb with dual exhaust and it runs like a top. Thanks all!
