Post by Bob Hughes » Mon 26. Mar 2018, 15:55

Im trying to figure out which head goes on which side of the block. I had them rebuilt but now they are at home I can,t tell which is let or right. Casting numbers are C3VE 6060-B and C3VE 6080-B . Can anyone help? I can,t see any difference. Are they interchangeable ? These heads are for my 1964 430 Lincoln Tks Bob

Bob the heads swap side to side. Look for witness marks from the head gaskets and intake manifold. The compressor brace spacer should have left a witness mark where that head bolt goes.
