This is a pre-1986 design small block Chevy cylinder head with a standard exhaust port design.
These fully assembled heads have single valve springs (with flat wire inner damper) with a seat pressure of 130 lbs. They are compatible with solid (mechanical) flat tappet or hydraulic flat tappet cams with up to .550 lift. Valves used are +.100" long and must be used in conjunction with aftermarket aluminum roller rocker arms to clear valve springs used which are 1.46" diameter. Heads are sold each.

Our Techs Recommend:
- Rocker Arms: 57533501 or 57523501
- Cam and Lifter Kits: 282122102 or 282122112 (for mild street use and hot rod sound without having to use a higher stall converter for an automatic transmission)
- Intake Gasket: FelPro 1205 gasket works best with this head (if using a 1204 you will need to do a little trimming around the ports)
Note: The heads will accept radical street cams such as number 282122144 but other requirements will need to be addressed along with this cam choice.
