    Don't have any article ---but==it was done by cutting off one cylinder from two heads and putting the two 3 cylinder portions together--the straight 4 and 6 cyl engines got a better weight break in NHRA mod classes and the Cleveland head was the best out there---I seem to remember that they may of even been used on some Chevy or AMC blocks
