Yes, there were some standard aluminum heads made by Pierce.  I am told that
altogether something like 107 were made, all have been sold.  They have very
efficient combustion chambers, use the small valve size.

I got a very nice rebuilt head from British Parts Northwest (advertises in
Hemmings Motor News).  Something like $375 with stainless exhaust valves and
hardened seats.
They apparently get these from England, as they use the European casting ;),
no injection ports = less prone to cracking.  You can get them with
injection ports if the pump is a must :(.  I think now the price is up to
$400.  These are fully assembled, no core required.
