Re: newb....

Welcome, 3 things to look at in my opinion
1, comp ratio?
2, Top quality rod bolts ARP Pro series, For the Nos and maybe H-Beam rods
3, A little bit more head work o/size valves,
Have you decided on a fuel system? manifold? Spark? Carby?
All in all sounds good though

Re: newb....

heads are at 71cc right now so if my math is right it should put me at 10.1:1
Also do have ARP rod bolts and main bolts and head bolts. sorry like I said I didnt include all info because its alot to type. I woudl love to run better head sbut this is where the budget is restricted. I will be changning the top end later down the road. I am actually currently looking for some australian closed chamber 2V heads if anyone has some they want to part with cheap. This would work alot better and I wouldnt mind spending the money on oversize valves and port work. I am running a sumped stock fuel tankaand an aeromotive A1000 fuel pump w/ -10 feed and a -8AN return w/ a A200 regulator. And am waiting to order my carb currently but I will be running a Patrick James Pro Systems carberator. Its holley based 4150 and with current specs we will be running a pro x series built to a true 780 -800 cfm. running an msd digital 6 box with mechanical pro billet... and a weiand excellerator intake.

Re: newb....

You should be able to get some decent aussie 302 closed chamber heads cheap enough. Prices have fallen dramatically due to the new design alloy heads being made. From what I've seen even 4V's have dropped in price.

Re: newb....

Problem is the weigh lots. Plenty of sets selling here in aussie land. Practically for nothing too. Due to weight though very few will send them anywhere as it costs lots of $. Generally more than the cyl head cost to buy.

Re: newb....

yeah i figured as much. I think I might have found a lead on a guy today in the bay area california that has a couple fo sets hiding in his garage. I also called Aus Ford Parts in Oregon. they said they have some but they want 499 if I order them direct for bare heads. I can wait till they get some on ebay for that price because they are going for 350 on ebay from same seller.

Re: newb....

Just read your post,

I just pulled some 4V heads off my Cleveland because I blew a head gasket. they are open chamber hydraulic heads.

I'm willing to part with them because i'm putting on the heads Clay Smith Cams modified for me. Claysmith is currently dissasembling the heads I'm keeping for use with a 292/570 cam. They have to use Big Block Chevy Ball rockers because of the CAM grind so i've been told,

Make an offer, I can send you pics of the heads and head gaskets that came off the motor if you want.

Here an hours north of San Diego, come by and see them if you want, your about 4 or so hours north of me.
