they are antiquated for making power. other than that if the castings are still good,remember the are 45 years old,use them for a mild engine or buy something new and make more power and probably burn a little less fuel

Pocket-ported and port matched with a good 3-angle valve job, they are great heads that can easily make over 375 hp.

Header Power Bracket makes a really nice alternator mount for your headers for these heads.

trans

Its kinda cool having the orig trans just for its originallity but with the cam gear in it slowin me down for sure. i dont haul too much and it aint no rock crawler.the first owner had it on his farm for a long time so im sure he benifited from the low gears. it tops out at about 65 (70 is pushing it) with the rpms at about 3500-4000 im probly gonna change out the cam to get a lil more out of it... any suggestions for the 327 and a 4 gear trans???

I think that they would be cool just for the nostalgia of having...as in the Bruce Springsteen song "Racing in the streets", "fuelie heads with a hurst on the floor"...to bad he was talking about a 396, that never came with fuelie heads. Bit of an error on Bruce's part but still a cool song, just like the heads.

Try this site

Head Guide

It should give you all the information you need for any early small block head. It has diagrams of markings on the heads and what cc and valve size they are, also what years of small block they came out on. I use this chart when I cruise wrecking yards

Hope this helps.

what you call power pack heads also came on 210 hp 327s,at least that pointy triangle casting mark
I think you need to identify the rear gears you currently have and tell us what you want the truck to do? Im not a big fan of what people call "rv" cams as the definition has changed over the years.We now better understand how engines work and breathe so picking a good camshaft is easier than in the voodoo days.
Is the truck 4 wheel drive? a daily driver? recreation only,,,,,

Don't worry; Manfred Mann's Earth Band got even with his faux pas by replacing the lyric "cuttin loose like a deuce" in their cover of his song "Blinded by the Light" with their lyric which sounds a lot like "revved up like a ******." LOL
