Duggan Head gasket needed
« on: July 18, 2019, 11:05:06 PM »
By a friend of mine... I guess it is the Australian version of the Chevy 2 4 cylinder.
Looks a little like this....
I can pick it up at Bonneville
Thanks guys

I don't know how different they are for a stock 153" but I would consider calling a supplier of Fontana midget engines. Joe had the ability to bolt any head to his block and the gaskets. He sold the company a few years back but they are still being manufactured. USA Performance Engines lists them on the net and are in Denver Colorado. 303-853-8200. good luck

The Duggan head fits on any Chevy II block.  It's the same as the Fontana and Arias head.  Try Esslinger Engineering in Chino, CA.  They purchased the Fontana 4-Cylinder a few years ago.

We looked at a chevy 2 gasket on the head.... might be as simple as adding a few holes for stream vents.
But the plan is to follow up on all sources mentioned.  He originally thought he needed to get it from Australia... but maybe he can get it locally.  JD, I put in a call to USA PE... after hours... so Monday. 
Thanks Guys, we appreciate he guidance.    :cheers:
