1725 Engine or Cylinder head

    Forlorn hope post. Does anyone in Washington have a running engine that their wife desperately wants them to get rid of? Or cylinder head? Forlorn hope is that I don't have much if any money but will take it off your hands... Any engine will do (it has to fit an SIV or SV Tranny) but the head is for my 1725.
    I want to run my SV this year but the current economic issues have left me with no disposable income. My current head is seaping coolant and needs rather expensive work. A smoker that runs is fine, I don't drive far when I use the car and will eventually fix the head,
    Thank you and stay safe!

    Not sure if you’re still looking... I’m in WA and have a cylinder head. Came off a runner 25 years ago but I don’t remember how it ran or anything. Let me know if you’re still needed one.

    Are you looking for a 1592 or 1725 head?

    I see you're in Fairbanks. Any other Sunbeams up there?

    Not many Sunbeams... there's mine, an Alpine II, also a Minx. Maybe some hidden treasures..
    My engine's a 1592.

    Dick, I spoke with Moonstone on the phone. It appears that I'm able to help out with the Alpine engine rejuvenation project. Max's parts bin is providing a cam and some lifters.
    Cheers

    thermostat housing? mine has a hairline crack at one of the corners... and yes, I'm still in need of a replacement cylinder head for sIV. Corrosion around the valve seats proved too extensive...

    I'm in Idaho and currently have 2 spare cylinder heads, one from a 62 and one from a 66, that I was going to clean up and list this weekend.

    Hello fireroad, I'm still on the hunt for a serviceable cyl head. Replacement didn't pass machinist's inspection. Let's chat! Melinda
