Post SBC HEADS

I have a 28 Ford coupe with a 64 Chevy 283 with a 4 speed. The problem is the 283 has a bad cylinder that needs to be sleeved. The question I have is that I can get a 350 from a 72 Chevelle minus the heads but will the heads off the 64 Chevy 283 work?

They will bolt on. Will they work, well that could be an issue. The 283 heads, if stock, had very small valves and chambers. This will up the compression on the 350 which could possibly cause issues with detonation. It is dependant on what pistons the 350 has, and what heads the 283 has. The 350 would be a dog with the small valves and runners, but it would run. If you are just cruising, the compression is not an issue, and you are not concerned with optimum power, it will work.

Thanks for the info . That gives me the answer I was looking for. I will probably sleeve the 283 and stay with it. Thanks again Chris.

The small valves and runners will probably make a low end monster,capable of removing tire tread for 100s of feet,it just won't wanna rev very high.

If there 58cc combustion chambers on a dished piston 350 with thick head gaskets the'll make around 9.6:1
