351c heads
#1
Finishing up the rebuild on my 71 351C. I want to check on something that's been bothering me a bit the last few days, and I can't find an answer in my reference books. My parts interchange book indicates there is only a single part # for both heads on my motor (2v heads). However on the "2" cast into the inboard corners of both heads, there are slightly different symbols next to the "2". Do these indicate orientation or is one was as good as another? Are the heads truly interchangeable side-to-side?

They will work on either side. Chuck

It is not paranoia. It is good judgement. Keep doing it. You will save yourself some time and a lot of work and money.

Good Luck,
Chuck
