About as strong as they get..

It was in the mid '70's when GM started thin-wall casting heads and I think some later when the Mexican blocks started.

You can tell the lighter cast heads b/c the sparkplug side is scalloped more then the older heavier heads and the mexican blocks have "Henco en Mexico" or something to that effect cast in them as ID.
