As far as SAVING $$$$$ & trust me as I am well over 70 ++ Years & on a limited Budget $AVING for some GREAT ToYS like Airplane FUEL / bigger MOTOR CYCLE / FASTER CARS etc etc etc etc etc etc etc...OOOH did I tell you I waz born in 1940??????? The NEW IMPrOVED HEAD fits FiNE...It is a tad bit Bigger due to ADDED COOLING AREA & the New HEAT SHIELD PLATE does need to be BEND .............just a bit????
Drawback is it would be Better if YOU INCLUDED 8 NEW HEAD BOLTS as ONE of the OLD ONES BROKE @ about 20 ft. #??? or should it be 15 feets lbs???
When a ENGINE OVERHEATS STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN TO A HEAD. WARP / BOLTS GET WEAKER / GASKETS GET BLOWN OUT / ETC ETC ETC.
SHIPPING PACKAGE WAS USED AS A FOOT BALL & HAD A BIG DENT INSIDE. JACKS SMALL ENGINE PACKAGE FOLKS GET AN A+++++++ AS THE HEAD & CONTENTS WAS IN FINE SHAPE WITH NO DENTS TO INNER PACKAGE.
NOW I AM WAITING FOR A WHOLE SET OF 8 NEW HEAD BOLTS ON BACK ORDER.....AT 77 I MAY NOT GET THE MOWER UP & RUNNING OR I SHOULDA ORDERED
