Question are these heads any good? 336781 oval port

i have a chance to buy a set of these cast iron heads. # 336781 made between 1973 and 85. there suppose to be 113.0 cc. these are bare heads that were supposedly magnafluxed and found to be in good shape. anyone know valve sizes, and weather they'ed be good street performance heads when equiped with 2.25 intakes and 1.88 exhuast (if they would fit) valves. are these open ports?
i can get them pretty cheap, but i've learned cheap isn't always a good thing.

thanks john

John,781's are some od the best open chamber BBC heads out there.
They will measure bigger than 113 cc (more like 118-120) unless they have been previously milled.
2.06/1.72 is the stock size

thanks chris. i think there may be too many variables. i'll probably buy some new heads. if i ad the shipping and replacement valves with machining i'm within a couple hundred.

thanks john

ps if interested they're in ebay for cheaps.

John,

I have NO idea what you want to build or to what power level, but it has been proven that just a GOOD bowl-blend and "dingle-berry" casting flash port clean up on a set of 2.06"/1.72" valve BB large oval port heads really wakes them up!!

AND only after adding big valves AND then doing the same port and bowl work to them will bigger valves help make more power!!

I mention this b/c this is my "poor-man's shade-tree" way of doing things!!

The 781 or 049 are the best ovals you can get. if you are sure about the condition and they don't need any seats replaced thay are great.

I am in the process of having my 781's worked over as we speak. After cutting in the hardened seats with 2.19/1.88 stainless steel valves and some minor port work. I will be into the heads approximately $750. That is a LOT less expensive than buying a new set of aluminum heads.

You don't need 345cc intake runners unless you have a 632 or something close.

for a complete rebuild of my 049 heads it cost me 315 bucks total. that was decked. valves reground 2.06 and 1.72 with a few new replacement thrown in the mix. seats done with 3 angle valve job and new guide liners installed with a set of "h.o." 427 springs and new retainers and keepers and umbrella seals.

this was from long's machine shop here in kansas.

mike stark from cfm said the 049 heads with bigger valves and pocket porting and casting clean up will flow about 300 cfm and support 550 hp easy.im using these heads on my 454 build up im doing now. port them and put bigger valves in them. so i guess i will spend alittle more money at longs shop to put the bigger valves in which is 100 bucks to cut them open for them. new valves can be had from competition products for under 100 bucks new.
