I have a 283 v8 and was wondering if there would be any problems putting 461 fuelie heads on it. The valves are 1.94 and 1.5, and it has 65 cc chambers. The rest of the engine is being rebuilt and will be completely stock, when it is done, except for the heads. The heads came off a 327.
Thanks for your help,
Also I was wondering if there is a way you can tell if a head has been milled by looking at it, or measuring it.
The 461 head came on the 61 HP 283s so they will work. Is there a reason you want the bigger heads? A 283 will run just fine with the small valve PP head or probabily even better with a modern 305 head. Unless it's in a very light car or one with an awful lot of gear you aren't going to have any low speed torque with the 461 head.
