    • Yes It seems like, for some reason or another, the head always goes missing, wonder why? Is it because, it’s the easiest way to sabotage the engine, into a useless piece of metal lump, or why do people just always need it?

      • Probably taken for scrap metal. The heads are heavy so they will bring more money, but not so heavy that one or two people can’t lift them.

        …Either that or they make great doorstops and anchors!
