Sbc Camel Hump Heads

Ok this is the deal my friend just bought a sbc motor from somebody that runs pretty good, but the problem is that we don't know anything about camel hump heads like the intake runner size, valves, combustion cambers nothing basically we don't know anything. So if any body can help us with any info we would surely be thankful. Oh yeah an please let us know if these heads are any good.

These heads use to be highly sought after for the street machine on a budget. When Vortecs came along nobody wanted the camel backs anymore.
Look on the link I`ll include, it`ll give you all the info you want on`em. If I had a set of camel backs I`d sell them and use the cash to invest in a set of Vortec heads. Vortec heads are 30 horsepower over the camel backs right out of the box. If your camel backs need rebuilding, it`ll cost more to have them rebuilt than you`ll invest in a set of Vortecs new.

There are also different versions of the double hump heads. You really need to check the casting #.
As DV mentioned they are not really that desirable anymore except for someone looking to do a period correct project.
