Thanks George! One less set of heads to pull. I got the Edelbrock's coming from DSC for the '73, then have to pull the '71's heads to replace the 2 piece valves after that. I just finished fabricating a new oil pan for the goose (raised and lenghtened it for ground clearance, it scraped on speed bumps even at angles) Whew! This is turning out to be a full time job!

No. Just the Cleveland 4v-CJ.

What you need to be careful of with the 302-4v is the pressed in rocker arm studs.
If you change the valve springs, have the heads changed to screw in studs.

Dennis,

How do you deal with so many cars? It must be a full time preventive maintenance job.

They've been keeping me busy lately. I've been having to keep jumping from car to car due to commitments for photo/video shoots for the 5-0 pushbutton. The '73 goes to the body shop for some minor fixes so I'll take the time to finish the 5-0 pushbutton before some other demands for it come up.

Thanks for the info, I'm planning to keep the 'goose stock, just need to change the nylon gear timing chain.
