Brownfield Heads

I have a set of these heads off a sbc, i found out they were made by what is now AFR.. so i called them up to see if they could offer any assistance.. not much luck.. they told me these heads where made 10-15 years ago. and they were all made different, made to order in a way. so they told me there is no way to tell how much they flow, what cc they are, or anything.. i don't even know what to torque them to ... if anyone has any info or can help, I appriciate it. thanks

They are correct. Way back when brownfield made heads for race cars. Each was a custom order and it went head by head much like the way AFR does their work today. If you note AFR still does order by order building. In any case the only way you will really know is to measure everything and stick it on a flow bench... They should still be really good heads weather they are right for you or not well that's up to the numbers...

Thats amazing that Brownfield/AFR dont have files on each pair made. I have a set of custom billet Top Fuel heads from the early nineties made by Ken Veney and all I do is call him with a question, give him the number he put on the end of the head and he pulls out the file and tells me what I need to know in about 2 minutes.

I have a set of "done up" Brownsfield heads on the shelf too. I know mine are 70cc chambers and 215cc runners. I don't know what they flow since I bought them like they are. They are very nice heads and were known to make power. You can easily either measure yourself or have them measured to see what they are, you can then have them flowed as well if you want/need exact numbers. Mine were machined and ported by Schiepers Speed Shop in Brookfield Wisconsin.

I wouldn't give up on them just yet, spend a few bucks to see what you have. Chances are you can build an engine around them.
