looking for cylinders (again)

four or five years on and I'm back to looking for cylinders and/or heads.

I started this a while ago and it just fell by the wayside, too much else to do and too little progress in other directions to make it urgent or even feasible, in the event. I should have just left it for later.

so, I'm back to looking for some cylinders and heads for a a hot 45" engine project. Ideally I'd like a set of K or KH ones, in 45" or 54" size, with or without pop-up. Failing that, some WL ones with big inlet nipples and/or porting and relieving.

I'm open to offers or pointers, preferably in UK or EU countries because of shipping etc.

Well, if you could wait a while ( planned is 9 months) we will have started up our first batch of repro WLDR ciliinders! I have no idea for K or KH cilinders.. If you will use WL cilinders at least use 1:6 compression heads ( repro available).

Re: looking for cylinders (again)

Wait 9 months for something that works, and fits straight on? Not a problem. Most of my historic problems revolve around the fact that I work on the rigs so I'm away much of the year, so things move very slowly for me, sometimes come to a dead stop and also, it's easier to deal with a dealer who takes paypal or a card.

Keep me posted

Well easy to fit.. In 9 months you would get a set of the first batch, and be considered a test subject :D IF my factory is able to make it, which upto now has been problematic at best

What cylinder heads would be used with replica WLDR cylinders
