Galbreath head nelson plug

Galbreath head nelson plug

Post  crankbndr on Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:13 am

Going through my glow heads I found two different types of heads, both take nelson plug and have the same bottom.
One has two fins and a heavy ring on top. Anyone know why, perhaps an older head?
Also has anyone used Kitting it Together lately? I just went there to get some heads and browser warned it was a bogus site?

The one on the left just looks like a milled TD head.

Left is DIY yep.

Folks can email Larry and tell him what you want with your address so he can figure out shipping cost.
I bought from Larry two yrs. ago via. email request worked just fine. See this pic for email.

I bought 2 heads snd some Nelson plugs recently from Kittingittogether and Larry the salesman or owner gave me a very polite service. He also gave me the same gasket advice as to Brad.

I think those two heads may have been made from a stock head. The left one has a counterbore to keep the slots to remove the head. The other one, the guy went to the trouble of turning the bottom fin down and milling slots in it. It is the better way, as the left one compromises the plug as the wrench could slip. I doubt the cooling makes a difference.

Week-before-last I ordered three heads and five plugs from him.  Ordered on Tuesday, got them on Friday.  Great service.
