    Default Head for sale 8/10 gumtree

    Hi
    I noticed this for sale on Gumtree in Newcastle area. "I was told it is a R10 sport head but who knows"
    the add says but it is an 8 port. Needs some remediation but may suit some one to do up for a hottie. Cheap enough $10.

    Looks to be a Renault 12 Head as it has the alternator mounting points, but I’m no expert.
    Still, for the price could be a good head for someone to modify.

    For $10 who cares! It looks as if it has had the old R8 1100 and R10 issue of top piston ring in pieces in the combustion chamber.

    10 S had an alternator but it was just where the generator went.

    That was my point. Why I felt it an R12 Head.

    One thread spoke about the weight of an 807 motor. I cannot find where so here is my reply re Sierra weights.

    Just for fun I checked my 956cc Sierra engine complete with genny, starter, clutch etc. It weighed 86 kilos. So lets say an R10 or 12 motor could weigh a bit more, perhaps some where between 86 and 90 kilos.
