Hello,

So how rare are camel hump heads with 1.94/1.50 and accessory bosses ?
I heard they are 1 year heads.
Picked up a set fresh from machine shop with $1400 worth of work.
New SS valves, seats, seals, springs etc.

What are they worth ?

Are these too high compression for a 7-41 blower or are they OK

If you got them cheap they are ok, less apt to crack, I have several sets myself, not all that rare, its just that most people now are using aluminum heads. As far as using them with a 471, if the motor is not built yet you`ll need to drop the compression down to about 7 to 1...for street use with pistons...

Back in the late 60's I worked at Rosecrans Auto Parts in Hawthorne,CA mostly in the back Machine shop fixing the cracks they got or "Plugging them". Rare would be if you found a set that didn't show any repair to them. In My Opinion $1400 would be best spent on a set of good Aluminum heads.
