If you want cheap pistons use Speed-Pro. They will probably last longer than those and cost less too.

Otherwise I recommend saving one or two more paychecks and getting forged pistons.

Just e-mail the company and ask them where is the closest place to where you live that you can order them. They would be more than happy to help. Or you can go here www.ixquick.com and type in Silvolite pistons and you will come up with quite a few hits.

Hey Mikey-Mike, can't never could bro. Here's what you need. They are cheaper than K-B too. PN H617CP, $226.

487X heads

You mentioned that the heads were 1.94/1.50 valves. That's incorrect. 487X heads have 2.02/1.60 valves. I have them on my truck. Just wanted you to know.

Perhaps YOUR heads are 2.02s, but ALL of the 487x heads I have seen in the last 20 years have been 1.94s. In fact, I have seen a LOT of heads that were "2.02s" that ended up being 1.94s when measured. Which isn't to say yours aren't 2.02s, just that if they are, they're rare.

This makes me want to take the heads off and look at them and see what's there. It seems there are different views on this subject. .

On ChevyTalk.com it's noted:

LARGE CHAMBER PRODUCTION "ON CAR" HEADS

"487" 3973487, OR 3973487X. The regular casting was found on the 1971-1972 350 LT-1 engines, had 1.94/1.50" valves, 76CC combustion chambers, DO have accessory holes, intake port volume should be 161CC's, exhaust port volume should be 65CC's. The 487X had 2.02/1.60" valves.

Lingenfelter's book says that these are great flowing heads.

Car Craft talks about rebuilding a set of 487X head but doesn't mention valve size.
