We're looking for a 186 casting head. Only need one head and not a pair, and as long as the head is not cracked or unusable in some way, we will buy it. It doesn't have to be assembled either.

Help....

Ebay doesn't seem to have anything. I'm only looking for one unrebuilt/unported casting.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I am looking for 1 bare bowtie head also.

I'll pay anyone $100 plus shipping if they can locate me one 186 head. I'm getting kinda anxious, too, since I promised they customer I could come thru and am starting to look like I'm not a man of my word.

Help! :-)

Hey KP i think the engine builder has the head you are looking for. I will find out this weekend, he has alot of the older heads now that they allow the aftermakets ones.
