my guess to...the cylinder size is pretty small...I should have laid a tape across the combustion chamber...

and by the

way it's not weird at all, in fact it was a completely normal and ordinary head from oh...1937 to about...1980.
Triumph, Horex, Norton, millions of BSAs, Matchless and AJS, the list goes on and on. All of them and many more made two valve pushrod OHV motors, you must be very young to regard that configuration as "weird".

Been accused of many things but very young hasn't been one of them for a lot of years... Wasn't talking about the configuration... Oh never mind...

Thanks for posting that Mike, brave of you and I learned a new one as well. The photo on the bike helped a lot.

Great to suddenly be so young; think I might stroll downtown for a sarsparilla and look at the new Henderson 4's. I hear this Hendee company back east might be making some new touring bikes soon.
