Ok how would those do on say these heads? And would those heads fit my build plans? The peace of mind is well worth $220. While im at it, is that price for two heads or one?

I used sig erson cams in the 70s.we had conical springs,those rockers,aluminum retainers.
the retainers were not a good idea,we allowed a couple seasons on the rockers but figured they would fatigue,,,never broke one.

those heads are really good from what I've heard, much better than procomps. I'd like to try a set but I have the last sbc I'll ever build in my basement. To me it makes no sense to build one any more.

Meh. 3/8 stud is fine. Use ARP rocker studs. You are staying under 7k, right?



( dont use those crappy old rockers. Get you a set of new Harland Sharps )

NO on those assault heads. Find some heads that are complete. You can find a better deal.

If you spend $7k on this motor, I will laugh at you. You can do it for way less.
You do know you can buy a big block crate motor for less, right?

3/8" is NOT the end of the world, PLENTY of sbc's use 3/8" rocker studs with no problem.

This is where you guys can hopefully help me out. The best deal ive seen on an all forged assembly with h beam rods and bearings and rings included is around 1300. And those heads seem to be the best deal ive found. The assault heafs would be around 1k completed. the other heads are near 1k but still need rockers.Im all ears to any links to better deals. God knows i need it.
