Maxima overload

Recommended Posts

Been calling around looking for another Maxima 47 head for a project I’m doing for a customer . I called a a junk yard that showed one available . I asked the guy if he really had one . He said “ I have 6” . I about dropped my phone . 
I said , “ I’ll take 4 ! “   I also picked up a 4 speed auto from the Maxima . Might as well fill the pallet !

It cost more to ship . I took a gamble and bought at core prices . First two seem good , haven’t got thru the rest yet

Put your name on the list I guess. I’m not sure how much I will want for these . They will be cleaned , pressure tested , probably a skim cut to make sure all is flat and perfect . I might just have 44mm valves put in them all if they give me a break on quantity!

I will be using at least one of them. So far they are all looking pretty good . Looking for the right machine shop to put the correct finish on the mating surface . 
 

They didn’t even offer a price with them pulling it ? 
 

I took a big gamble , but I might have got lucky .

This yard has a lot of really old cars. All kinds. I get a better price pulling parts. The ZX tranny I'm redoing came from there. He also had an L20b I was gonna get but pulling it would have been a pain!

That works good!

What is the recipe?

Distilled white vinegar and a parts washer pump

Straight vinegar . The pump helped by keeping things stirred .
