Re: What Head Are these

Scott,
The oval and rectangular refers to the INTAKE ports. Cant see them in your picture

The head part number should be on a pad, that is cast somewhere between the rockers and valve springs.

Scratch that last comment, about a pad. I was thinking small block. For a big block, look here :

Re: What Head Are these

Those are oval port heads. 215 is the casting number that most use to refer to those heads, it's the last 3 numbers of the casting number.

They are closed chamber too, for future reference. Produced around 1966-70 give or take a year or 2. I think the intake ports are 255 CC, pretty close.
