blydenstien stage 4 1256 head.

Postby heg123 » 15 Dec 2007, 17:14

here is a blydenstien stage 4 head foe the 1256cc chevette engine it also had the rocker cover which as the integralinlet manifold for a single 40/45 sidedraft.

you coudnt get any bigger valves than this

the engine comes whole so just put it in and away you go but it doesnt come with a carb but they are easy enought to find.

open to offers as dont know how much this would be worth these days as my freind bought it back in the late 80s brand new and I rebuilt it back in august.

cheers

It is for the head and the inlet/rocker cover - not including a engine block?
BTW, what do you mean by "rebuilt it"? No offence, but I've seen some horrific butchery described like that!

Not sure what you mean.
Because the inlet port is so close to the rocker cover, it can be difficult getting a decent port size and still fit the cover without modification - I had a stock inlet welded and opened out and it required careful fitting to get everything to bolt up.
To make things relatively simple (!), you could purchase a combined inlet and rocker that were the same casting. This was a great idea and the only drawback, really, was the manifold would run hotter and have a small power loss, however some would argue it promoted fuel atomisation for better combustion. I haven't seen or heard about comparisons between separate components and the intergated one.

Personally, I would expect this to go to someone who REALLY wants to build up a period style car and good luck to them - if I had the money (well I do, but looking for a T5 gearbox and may have found some cheap forged rods etc for the XE) it would be fun to put an engine together.

The guy that has offered 400 for it should also check out the 1256 Chevette LSD diff' for sale - would be an excellent compliment to the engine setup.
