I did a little research and found out the 219 head has 1.94/1.50 64 cc and found conflicting info on the 191 heads, I found one place saying 1.84/1.50 76cc heads and other saying 1.94/1.50 64cc heads, please help this is a 350ci 88 motor and will be going into a boat.. MAYBE... can I run both of these heads with no problem?
Wow I've got a lot of head data and can not find a 14096219 there is a 14096217 however which is a cast iron version of the L98 Corvette/Camaro Z28 aluminum head. The cast iron version was used on some early TPI passenger car engines; this is a small 64 cc chamber head. The 14102191 is the large chamber, 76ccs, Swirl Port head used on TBI trucks. Of the two the 14096217, if that what this is, would be the far better choice to find a mate to, while the 14102191 is more inferior choice it's a lot more common to locate. I'd go to Ebay and shop around. Be careful the 14096217 makes two different part numbers that vary but the angle of the center intake bolt angle P/N 10125377 has the 72 degree angle for 1986 and newer intakes while P/N 10159552 has the 90 degree angle for 1955 into some 1986 intakes. Since the 14102191 Swirl Port only came with 72 degree angled bolts its a good bet the other side is P/N 10125377 of the 14096217 casting. Be sure to ask and validate which angle the center bolt makes to the intake gasket surface of the head as these are not interchangeable with the intake without a large amount of modification to the intake.
