It's a W58 with the closed chamber design.


W58 also is the only L head with round exhaust ports.

I have seen more Peanut W58s than non Peanut ones... People always say they are hard to find, but they seem to be common to me...

I agree with you, I have seen more peanut heads than open chamber heads also, I have 2 peanut W58 heads myself, they are parts/scrap to me, but I used to think that early 510 wagons were hard to find also. :|

I haz a W53 here that I'd be willing to trade for a different head.

Big valved A87 or a U67 in similar shape to my W53.
