We do not have any demand for JP stuff in North America - thus no stock... If you do not find one here, let me know and we can locate an import for you. As you indicated, the shipping might be a bit high for this item from overseas.

^^ Or you could import one directly from India yourself.

From such people as these: http://www.moonrise.in/cylinder-heads/d-g-enginesh.html

Who are producing new castings, I personally know of someone in the UK who periodically imports bare JP heads from these people, for use on marinised Lister JP engines.  As this route is becoming viable as the supply of good used heads is ever diminishing, due to cracking and corrosion issues.

The only problem area he has had on these heads so far is the cast iron is quite soft (which caused valve seat reccession), so he now has them fitted with valve seat inserts, and then fits them with genuine Lister valves, guides, springs, valve caps, and collets.
