The shop that installed the engine came up with it. I did a little searching and came up with the following though.

Yeah, thanks.
I found the same thing on Summit (made by Earl's)
I was looking at the length of the barbed end with a bit of skepticism, though. Is yours as long as what that appears to be?

Page2171:
I had the same car at age 17 or so.
Same engine, too.
I hadn't heard the term "nailhead" at that age, though.

I bought the car from my uncle, and destroyed it in very short order ... racing a '72 Chevy 1/2 ton with a 350 4bbl.

The car had a rad leak, and at that age ... I drove it as long as the wheels would turn. Guages were something you looked at AFTER seeing the smoke or hearing the noise back then, I guess.

I am going to ask a question that may get me shot, but...


Why do they call it a nailhead?

I have never seen one in person. I am faimiar with ford flatheads and Y-blocks.

I think the one on my car is as long as the ones in the summit and Jegs catalog. If you look really closely, you can kind of see where the end of the fitting goes to in the tube on the way to the water pump. The tube seems to be perfectly straight and then makes a abrupt turn to the connection to the water pump. It looks to me like there is not very much space between where the fitting ends and the water pump starts. I have a long pump so that gives me a little more room to allow for the longer fitting. I don't know if it would work with a short pump or not.

Also, Brian, I would like to pretend like I know what a nail head is also and just wait for the answer, but I must confess I dont know either.

From what I understand they got the name Nailhead because with the valve covers off the valves look like nails sticking up because the valves are vertical not angled like most engines.

OK..... Can't say that I have ever seen a picture like that either.

That is an interesting design.

Here's my engine:

1980 Chevrolet 350 with 4-bolt mains.
Edelbrock performer 64 cc heads
Edelbrock performer plus camshaft
Edelbrock performer intake
Rochester Quadrajet carb
Summit headers




This picture is from 2002. I pulled the engine out and cleaned it up (picture taken prior to clean up)


This summer I decided to modify it a bit. Out it goes again.


Stripped down to the block, oil pump and crank.


Edelbrock performer heads 64cc, and Edelbrock performer plus camshaft installed.




Overhauled Quadrajet with 0.73 primary jets and 42 main metering rods. Stayed on the rich side just to make sure. I'll try 46 rods soon.


Homemade Ram Air.
