Bought it with a rumored 15k on the head from a lovejoy vegoil lawsuit. Was cleaned and pressure tested. Still on engine, so it will need to be pulled.

pardon my ignorance but what is a 'lovejoy vegoil lawsuit' and how does one acquire a cylinder head from it/them?

Lovecraft was a veggie oil conversion company. IIRC they ran a single tanks system without heated lines and it compromised the filtering ability. They ruined plenty of good engines.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had a lawsuit against them that ended up buying a few new engines.

The big goldenrod filters had a heated head- the engine coolant heater line ran thru it. the first car I bought-I flew out to Burbank, went to santa maria - picked up the car -up hwy 1 to Big Sur and before driving it home I went to lovecraft on sunset and picked up that part.
