If you need a P-38 Tank to put these in, or intake or exhaust manifold etc. Sakowski Motors, Los Angeles, CA can help you with all your needs. Early style Ardun Ford Flathead Aluminum Racing Heads. These are in stock condition, with no modifications, numbered 176 and 177 respectively. creator, Zora ARkus DUNtov "A popular modification for the flathead was conversion to an overhead-valve configuration, and many such modification kits were available, including the Ardun heads[8] from Zora Arkus-Duntov who was to go on to fame as the "father of the Corvette". These conversions were not initially demanded by hot rodders looking for extra power, as they had not yet exhausted the capabilities of the flathead configuration, but were demanded by users of the engine in trucks and other such high load applications, where the constant flow of hot exhaust through the block to the exhaust manifolds caused the entire engine to overheat; the overhead-valve heads routed the exhaust out more directly, and away from the block." ( from Wilkapedia )

Parts included are the heads, valve covers (Ardun logo was milled off), valve train, spark plug tubes, x4 knurled brass retainers and valley cover... what I don’t have is pushrods, lifters, intake and exhaust manifolds.

The heads were taken to a very reputable machine shop in Los Angeles.

Verdict is the heads are virgin... untouched. In stock shape.

The seats and guides are original bronze and the castings show no signs of cracks, corrosion or customization. At this time I can’t say the valves are original to the Ardun, the valves are cut at an unusual 40*, whereas the seats are 30*.... The valve springs on the other hand I believe are original, although unmarked.

The story is that the heads came out of Ohio where the owner ran an engine with these heads for a very brief amount of time, thenpulled them off. Considering their condition, I'd say its a believable scenario. Then they were sold to Norway, then through a couple of hands over the years… until here they are.

Ready for your dream car.
