401 HEADS ON A 304,HAS ANYBODY DONE THIS? I AM CHECKING FOR A FRIEND OF MINE THAT IS TRYING TO GET HIS CJ RUNNING. DOES 401 HEADS HAVE L-SHAPED PORTS?
THE MOTOR USED TO RUN ALONG TIME AGO,BUT HAS NOT BEEN STARTED IN 7 YEARS. I KNOW IT IS PROBABLY A WASTE OF GOOD HEADS, BUT THAT IS WHAT IS ON IT RIGHT NOW. TIA
i have 401 heads on my 304. my 304 was also bored .040 over and balanced. it has turned over 6000 rpm with no problems. the ports are indeed "L" shaped.. this gives the engine that sweet AMC rumble. 304 heads also have "L" shaped heads though.. the 401 and larger 360 heads are the same(360's had 2 types of heads)
