    Thanks for sharing -- Good to see that kind of energy into keeping Capris on the racing scene, and scoring.

    Buy heads and all here. https://initracing.co.uk/parts-for-sale/ford-cologne-weslake-v6-cylinder-heads/
    Be prepared to part with a arm, leg and maybe a kidney as well:D
    The other problem is the heads are of no use by themselves. You have to get nearly all the parts in the catalog to be able to get a working Weslake engine.$$$$$$$$$$$$:eek::(
