Default P-51

Any of you Ford racers hear about the P-51 head? It won't be available anymore. A guy that lives near the foundry told me that some problems with the tooling are to blame. Something about using cores that belonged to another owner without permission. The P-51 never had it's own tooling. The P-51 was cast off modified SCJ rubbed cores. Evidently nobody knew this.

Interesting.... Kaase has always advertised these as an "an all new casting".

With the P51, the idea was to incorporate the gains made in port development on the Super Cobra Jet into an all new casting; essentially, the P51 was to be an "as-cast" piece designed to resemble the ports of a fully ported Super Cobra Jet.

Well ya learn something new everyday. The P-51 is an SCJ with different intake ports and water jacket. Modifying the SCJ tooling can be done to produce P-51 head castings. Evidently there must be some conflict with the owner of the SCJ tooling. Just a guess though. The obvious thing is the P-51 is not available. Nothing coming from JK as to when if ever it will start production again.
