British headset with 27.0 crown race...?

Hey folks, I'm in want of a high quality, British-made headset from early to mid '70s... with a 27.0 fork crown race. This is for a '75 Jack Taylor curved-tube. I don't want to cut the fork crown to take a 26.4.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
nice lugs baby!

i'm not sure but i think you may be able to just buy a 27mm crown race, and use any other hcadset you choose. in other words the crown race seating diameter may be independent of other headset dimensions. maybe others can be more authoritative.
