Hello Gordon....some new heads were recently made from original patterns and available for $185.00. These heads have not been machined. If you have the original head you may be able to salvage the valve guides. If not I have nos guides, also unmachined. I also have valve springs...........Joe

Gordon....cracks can be welded sometimes but probably not a good idea if you are going to use the engine in a boat. There is a lot going on when you try to weld repair a crack. As most of these engines were salt water cooled the head crack is likely a rust expansion problem which means a weld repair or an epoxy repair will not last as the rust tumour is still alive inside the head. There are places that do cast iron crack repairs but mostly auto parts that have not seen salt water. They are reluctant to take on a repair such as yours for many reasons, all of which point to lack of success. Your engine J2749 was built in 1936 and was bought by A. Linton and Co. Andy Linton was just down the street from Easthope and Turner Boat works. Andy Linton built mostly clinker construction and the records show the engine and boat went to a logging outfit somewhere in the Queen Charlotte Islands. Do you have the boat too? Do yourself and your engine a favour, get a new head and be happy that you can.............Joe

Hi Jim, It started with the post previous to yours which I answered. It was not a 2hp but a 7hp. It appeared complete but was rusted solid. The previous owner had passed away recently and friends were trying to handle his estate, hence the post. My records show that the owner John, had 4 engines, one of which was that 2hp. We could not find the other engines. It was later learned that John had a storage facility and the engines were probably in there. The Public Trusty got involved and apparently visited the storage facility to value the contents. He declared there was nothing of value and hired someone to haul it all away. It is not clear that the engines were in there but. You must know where the scrap yards are in Aldergrove/Abbotsford area....maybe we should have a look around!! Joe

Thanks Jim.....a couple of planks, some rollers, and a come-along and it is home. It looks like it might have not seen salt water but it has been sitting outside for some time but very restorable I think. I do appreciate your offer of help..............Joe

On the subject of salt damaged heads.
If a new head is not available and pattern making and recasting not an option, can future damage after repairs are made be avoided by an electrolytic bath? Any opinions will be welcom.

Hi Martin, I would suggest trying to locate an other head. Welding the head back together is an exercise in futility. There is a fellow who has a father that is a chemist, and some where on this old engine site theirs a write-up on this problem. I don`t think that they have found the total cure for the problem.Something to do with a chemical that is suppose to react on the salt.I have a copy of it around,it`s just not handy. Best I can do for now. Jim

Thanks for that Jim, unfortunately getting an other head is not possible for this model.
Has anybody had any success with electrolytic or other chemical treatment?

Martin, I have a friend that has had some success derusting and desalting inside water jacketed parts by heating them red hot in a fire pit and gently cooling the part. The electrolytic process would be very difficult if not impossible on the interior of a small part such as yours as the anode (or is it cathode) has to see the surfaces that are affected and without touching the metal.
