Rajo Head for 216 Chevy Six
« on: February 18, 2020, 12:27:01 PM »
Here is a link to a fun build of a '29 Chevy coupe rising a Rajo head. I'm a Chevy and GMC six guy and I didn't know this head was ever made.

I've been watching this one on the HAMB.  Very interesting.
Working for a living gets in the way of finishing my car

When I bought out the complete company samples of every cylinder head gasket that Fitzgerald gasket co made 1909--1950, back in 1978 era.

There were RAJO head gaskets for model T and A's, plus 1914--1926 dodge 4 cylinder.  There were also gaskets for the LAUREL HEAD, FRONTENAC HEAD, and one for the Willys 4 1933---1939.

  Never found any for the ARDUN head, might have gotten grabbed by garbage guys when left in rear lane overnite.

Followed the link and great read on the 216 chevolet, never heard of it before either.

It just shows that there are still things for us old dogs to learn.

Never heard, or saw one, I don't believe.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn
