The head might be similar to the ruston pt type hopper head which is held on by the brass nuts but the hopper is held on by smaller bolts round the outside

I undrestand they are different but my question is why couldnt the hopper be mounted using the head stud bolts.

the problem is the clylinder head is spose to have a dip in it also slits around it so the water can cool the engine and get into the block, as the cylinder head you have does not have slits on top , the water is just going to sit on the head, so there wont be nothing cooling the block , so theres no way you could run it

Thats what i was thinking. Can you supply me the dimensions of your hopper please? And can you take some pics of the maggy and the coupling between the maggy and the engine.
