Re: Specs on 416 casting heads?
Hey, I feel for you Sean. I too got caught up in the deal with AM Performance on Ebay. I went up to a salvage yard one day when going north to do some shopping, and wasn't happy with the collection of heads there. A lot of smog heads to sort through. So that day when we got home I did some searching on Ebay and came up to a couple of his auctions. I wanted to get some heads in line for my 383 I was building at school, so I ended up ordering them, after a couple emails from him. He talked up the heads, and convinced me that they're good. While trial assembling the engine, I noticed powdercoating falling off of the combustion chambers onto the piston tops. And to this day, i'm also still blowing oil out of the exhaust. I don't think its a problem with the rings as I have excellent compression, which I would think would make it valve seals. Also, after the "work" that they do to them, you can't be too sure what size combustion chambers they have which is too sketchy for me and doesn't make me happy.
If you would like more info on the heads or would like to talk more, let me know.
Oh...... Hey Paul!!
