Pro 785 head question
Alright, the project continues very soon, I will open a new thread in a day or two once the rest of my parts are ordered.
My question is regarding the cylinders and cylinder heads.
Are 97 pro cylinders supposed to have the grooves in the top of the cylinders for the two o-rings like on the domestics?
Reason I ask is because I am going to be putting on the Hot Seat head, and I know that uses o-rings, so I just want to know how exactly that will work being that there is no where to put o-rings on my cylinders. Can you use the stock head gasket with the ADA or Hot Seat head?

No o-rings on stock 785 pro jugs.
Pro 785 use head gaskets
Go ADA, Not... hot seat
I loved my ADA head, it was like a piece of jewelry

Okay thats what I thought.
I like how the ADA head has the individual cooling lines. If I went with the hot seat head, I think I would try to modify and tap three fittings into it. I have to assume people have done that before.
This is a tough decision, the ADA head is actually cheaper, but the problem is that anodized red is not going to match the color scheme I am putting together for the engine compartment. I wonder if I could get a silver or natural colored one.

Maybe with the money you save, you can get the head cover stripped and anodized whatever color meets your fancy??

If you wanted to, you can definately tap the HotSeat and put fittings in there...

Definately possible all you need is a brass plug from homedepot to plug the old outlet then drill and tap the new holes for what ever size brass barbed fittings I did it on my Hot Seat head b4 i lost a pistion and ruined the dome, then went to the ADA.

You could always powdercoat the ADA head.

Powdercoat could withstand the temperature the head gets to?

Yes, the powdercoat will easily withstand the temps.
