    These don't appear to have any accessory mounts. I don't know if you need them on your engine. I can't guaranty that they will fit your car, but you could give Speedway a call. Their tech department may have experience fitting them to something similar to yours.
    If he uses the stock heads he won't need them as the mounting holes are there. Early sbc heads did not have mounting holes which makes them a PITA to use. The main problem with many later castings is that they are thin wall and large combustion chambers for emission standards. I replaced the heads on the 350 in my 76 Vette with 624 castings even though they are prone to crack. From information I sourced the cracking mostly occurs with 2.02 valves and mine are 1.94's and so far I've had no problems and the Vette runs at a constant 200º.

    Thank you for finding those. I'll have to look to see if I need any accessory mounts, I don't think I do. I'm pretty sure that the only accessory would be the alternator, and I believe it has a bracket that would bolt on.
    I'm heading out of town for a few days so my quest is going to be put on hold till next week sometime.

    I have an update. I just dropped the long block off with the machine shop. I have decided what I'm going to do for the build.
    It's getting a Quadrajet carb and intake manifold. I will use the stock exhaust manifolds sent to Patriot side pipes to open it from single exhaust to dual. The stock Powerpack heads will be rebuilt with larger valves, it'll get a mild cam and a stroker crank (or maybe a 327 crank) and cylinders bored .030 over.
    This build will give me the stock '60s look that i am after under the hood and more power to play with.

    Thanks everyone for playing this game with me to help me figure what the best set of modifications were going to be for my ideas.

    I know, I know. I just need to figure out how to upload pictures on this site. This site is quite a bit different to navigate than the others I'm on.

    If it is too cumbersome, there are those who will post for you.

    Great guys here.

    It shouldn't be too bad once I figure the process out.

    At the bottom of each page or also below each post, there is a box to type in a reply, select the "Go Advanced" button. In that window you can type your reply plus, scroll down to"Manage Attachments", click on that and in the next window it asks you to navigate to where the file you wish to upload. Click on that file and do an upload. It can upload 5 pics I think it is. Then select Done and it'll put your pics into your reply. That's the 5 cent version. If you need help and just want to get something up, e-mail it to me@ mfmike1@comcast.net and I'll put them in for you. HTH

    One thing to remember is file size. For a JPG/BMP file I believe the limit is something like 750kb but it may be a bit more, so it's often necessary to reduce the file size. MrMustang can correct me with the right file size numbers if I'm off too much.
