mitchg95: also look and the other side where the "combustion chamber" is. the ones with the smaller chamber are the high compression heads, usually with only 2 fins, but there are some with 3 fins and the knurling on top as seen in your photo. happydad Small Cox Logo

thanks, the head has 4 fins, looks like a smaller combustion chamber than what i am used to Smile and as a plus the engine needed no work when i purchased it, just a external cleaning Smile
