The integrated head was used '75-up.

There were a few years (1971-'74) that had the 5/8" hex peanut plug AND the non integrated head.

The integrated heads were 1-barrel until about '79 when the Varijet staged 2-barrel began to be used.

There's a head casting number 3836848 (found under the valve cover, BTW) used on the '62 235. Considered to be a good head. Look under the v-cover for the c/n if you want to get exact on what the head is. The casting numbers you found will sometimes have the same last numbers as the main casting number under the cover, but there's no guarantee on this.

Im seeing the casting number being found outside the valve cover, so there's no need to take the cover off to find the c/n. As you can tell, I am not an inline guru.

The number you read as "824848" is actually B24 848. The B24 is a date code, it breaks down as Feb. 2, 1964 I do believe.
