    1300 wash and head pics

    Swapping out my Jims head for a Lowell head today, took a few pics.

    In the head, there is a zinc annode screwed in, see pic, since I am nowhere near salt, or any bad water, do I need to put it in the new head?

    Put them back in,make sure they are ground down and will clear when you bolt the head up. Take a straight edge across the head with the anodes in to make sure they clear.

    Gotcha!!!

    Glad you mentioned it Woody, I have to grind quite a bit off the anode itself, it sticks way out.

    Now that I ground those off, since they sit in the water passage, they could be as long as they want couldn't they? If they were lined up and went into the other opening right?

    Either way, they are done now. Now I just have to find my blue loctite.

    Done...
    I think I may need a washer under the head bolts, this Lowell head is a tad skinnier than the Jims head.

    You will need washers under the 2 pipe mounts and head bolts.I use a marine,waterproof grease on the head bolt threads or a little 2 stroke oil,just a little,no loctite.Now my heads are cut more for my elevation.I measure the cylinder bolt holes and the thickness of my head to determine the amout of washers i need with a caliper.Use some waterproof grease on both sides of the head gasket.How many hours on the head gasket?Have you had it on and off alot?

    I am .07 skinnier on the head now.
