Hi, I thought people might be interested to see this, from what I hear it is quite rare. I havenít got to run it yet but hopefully soon.

Itís a Brian Chuchua head, Chuchua is what the lettering says. I got it 20 years ago from a guy I worked with, I thought it was cool so I bought it for $100. Recently I found out it is a high compression head so I dug it out and fixed it up and decided to put it on while Iím fixing a bunch of other stuff. Should go well with my Clifford cam and header, the 32/26 Weber and distributor recurve.

There is no sufficiently superlative term to describe the coolness of this head!

It is pretty cool, I have it all running now and it seems to work well. It runs very well down the freeway, had the needle off the end today getting in front of a semi. Itís hard to say if itís just the head though, I did a few other things that probably helped too.

More, more.
Tell us more.
And pictures.

Also, I assume that head was sand cast. So where is the pattern????
Someone could make more if he had the pattern.

I donít really have much info, Vic Hickey originally designed them and then Brian Chuchua continued on with them, as for a pattern or mold Iím sure they are long gone, this head was probably built 50-60 years ago. Iím thinking about starting a build thread about the work Iíve done and things that will be coming, maybe some people would be interested.
