Hi guys im a newbie here
I have a 63 galaxie xl500 convertible
I think ive got a shit valve as its running like a dog i have another set of heads that need a touch up but was wondering if a 351 set of heads and manifold would fit just to make things easy? Any help would be great

Nope. You're stuck with FE heads and intake unless you change the rest. Rather than jumping into a new set of heads, perhaps pulling yours and checking them out? You may find your problem without even pulling the heads, could be a bad spring on a rocker. Try doing a compression test and see what comes of it.

BTW, in running like a dog, what's it doing?
