    Default Hate seeing this

    Back when Steelcomp was building Nelson deal, and ran the thread on Patriot heads, I had a talk with him about doing some Canfields. He told me then, that this was coming, but you still hate to see it. I am sure this guy put alot of blood sweat and tears building this company. I understand him wanting to hang it up, but you would think he could sell it off whole. Interesting to see who ends up with the tooling for the heads. Jegs or BMF?Just hope whoever does, keeps up the quility and doesn't send them offshore.

    Shit... I really liked their product... very nice castings... and did not have to be reengineered to get good results from... my opinion, perhaps the best bang for the buck I have come across.


    Bummer... hope whoever gets them doesn't cheapen the name with going offshore or producing poor quality.

    Sorry to see this.

    Was Canfield the supplier of Jeg's BBC heads?

    If they weren't, it was a damn good copy. http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...-1&showValue=3
    And they supplied the core head to CFE/BMF

    Yes, and one or multiple of the SBC heads too.

    That's exactly why I asked. I've got a set of heads that are dead ringers for Canfield 310's but the paper work showed them as "HRW". Now, seeing that HRW = Hot Rod Wheels, an associated company to Canfield, I wonder if they are the same, just without any branding on them.

    Just got off the phone with John, he has some pet projects in Chyrsler stuff he is going to continue to do and he is sure someone will end up with tooling and machinery to continue on the Canfield Chevy and Ford heads.

    Oh, we got change, and I hope it doesn't get any worse. We are slow enough now, that I am seriously thinking of retiring.

    At least you are able to do so.

    The many others who are still trying to pay for their dreams aren't doing so well.

    I just got back home from SEMA. I was speaking the wrong language. At least 50% of what I saw came from China and the far eastern countries in that area. "$300 turbos !" "$59 (17") aluminum wheels with powder coating !" The USA cannot allow this kind of "import policy" to continue. China is 'dumping cheap stuff here' without paying any kind of real 'import tax' and the QUALITY of those products is still in question. WE continue to trade with them after they "steal our designs, our technology, undermine quality, and then poision our pets ! Our government is not on our side, because if it were, we would be charging "an import tax to equalize the retail prices of those imports to the retail prices of domestic products"! JUST LIKE JAPAN DOES !

    In the end, the consumer has to shoulder some responsibility as well.

    Yes but in reality this will never happen because people don't see the big picture. All they see is cheaper and to most people, cheaper is better HUGE problem in this country right now.
