Looking for a L134 Supersonic head in the Harrisville WV area. Any ideas? I could fly up to the nearest airport and pick it up.Emoticons

Looks like that CL engine is actually a Henry J engine, even if it did come out of a Jeep.  The weird air horn and the backwards carb certainly aren't Jeep items.  There's a lot of stuff there; too bad it's so far away.
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

Ralf - the storage fee exceeded the value of the supersonic head some months ago.  Oh, wait a moment-I was supposed to arrange free delivery to you.  I'll call the dispatcher tomorrow and see when a trip is planned for your area.

I need an excuse to fly to Jackson County airport. Is that the closest? Actually PKB is closer but it has a control tower and I fly w/out a radio.

   Is the Supersonic head the "high-compression" head I have read about somewhere and probably from oldtimer.   ha

   How much would one have to pay for one of these rare heads in good shape ?

   thanks

Whatever the seller and buyer can agree on. I've seen them priced at upwards of $300. Whether they sold for that, well now,,,,,       BW

Hey Bruce, your delivery service is slower than "Snail Mail".
Did Ralf finally get his SS head???????

Yes he did, Greg.  And I packed it in a Priority Mail box!
Air Mail option did not work out - airstrip owner was concerned the plane would hit one of his cows.
