You might try contacting Mike at Metric Motors.

There is a seller named tomdotmebbe (I think) that has them on e-bay all the time. has rebuilds. Sun City recycling has used heads.

Metric is the gold standard, though.

Thumbs up 300 E Head

Hi Evan,

Have you located a head yet? I have a bare casting (without cam and springs) if you need it, let me know. I could not use it on my 2.6, as the valves are larger and the bore is as well. The head dropped a valve and ate a piston (regular gas suspected as the culprit).

Good luck!

What is wrong with the casting you have?

Merry Christmas,
