Takes up a tremendous amount of room in my toolbox too.
I have both of those books. Handy to have.
Yes sir, they got me going in my very late teens/early 20's, but I learned a good lesson about using hyd. lifters to check P to V clearances, boy, that hurt LOL, but I never made that mistake again
I just had to see what books I still had. Theirs even a new looking, untouched ford book in the mix.
That's cool.....I have the "Power Secrets" book by Smokey, and the Bill Jenkins as well.
There worth more now than what we paid for them back then!!!
I just got the heads back. The casting number is 6272292. I looked them up here: http://www.minuit10.net/EngineCode/chevy/BBChevyCylinderHead.htm and they appear to be oval port from 1971 open chambered with 2.06 intake, 1.72 exhaust valves.
The goal for this build is to have a really fun street machine that I can take to the strip a couple of times a year. Do you all think I could make it work with these heads and get a respectable amount of horsepower? Or would these be a major bottleneck?
