    Do you know what year the heads are? Just curiuos what you have there?
    If you flip one of the heads over and snap a photo we can see if they are closed chamber or open. also any letters or numbers on the heads or the block and we can tell what you have there, if you would like to know for sure. Kurt

    we have a open head from a 82 van.
    it all came from that van
    we also have a closed one but we arent going to use it.

    it is coming along.
    everyday after work something gets done to it.
    we will put 2"square tubing all around the windshield frame.
    there is now 3/4" tubing under the lip the dash slides into and a section of plate along the bottom edge.

    it's obvious why nobody does these ancient chevy's.
    all that wood is a pain in the neck.
