As mentioned, if the heads haven't been rebuilt to run unleaded fuel, then they need all SS valves, and hardened seats. My local guy charges $300 to redo them, and at the same time he'll make the intakes 1.94" for a 283, or 2.02" for larger SBC with 4" bore.
I just got a pair of old 2,02 camel hump heads from him, and I just welded up a bracket to make my alternator mount on the front two header bolts, and adjusting arm off the water pump.
