Re: 2V or 4V?

if it is in the car and u cant see the exhaust ports there will be a 4 stamped around the rocker cover bead on the outside edge of the cover inbetween the head and manifold.

There are other variations but this one is common, if the heads are off the car its easy to pick.

Re: 2V or 4V?

Looks like a 2V to me. I go by the manifold runners. A 4V manifold is quite distinct.

Re: 2V or 4V?

A red motor in a blue oval? The ultimate cardinal sin! Promise us you will paint it blue or anything but red when you do her up!
When you pull the heads off you may even find 4v valves in your 2v heads if someone has done her up

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

Re: 2V or 4V?

hahaha sorry fellas my bad, when we pulled her out the first time she was blue, and my dad painted her read !!!!!! i didnt know what he was thinkin hehe, yeh when i get the heads done and 351 crank shaft in ill be sure to paint her blue again

edit: it was originally an auto and has been cylinder bored 20 thou? something like that, somone told me that the 2v's had lower compression which suited the autos better?

Re: 2V or 4V?
