    Woody 79,

    Yes, I have ported several sets of the old style heads. In fact we have some of them in here right now. The short side radius is the area that needs a lot of work in order to help them.

    Charlie I have a set of old style A heads. Was wondering if you had any luck making those heads flow. They are going on 485 ci motor for truck pulling, if so I need to visit you.

    Charlie- Scott tells me you di a trick motor with a small cam and TFS streets and dyno'd it, from his memory it was: 600+tQ and 470+ power and only 9:1. Do you have any key words that will let me find it on the board? I am just not finding it

    Hi Charlie,
    The heads are on their way. Any ?'s you can call me or send me a message.

    Thus far IMO, you have not committed any errors that you need to worry about. I believe many times that ARP gives misleading torque info, in regards to their products. On final assembly I would just torque the alum. heads to 135 lbs with oil on the threads. Maybe let things set overnight and go back and check the center studs, because they seem to loosen up in my experience.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Charlie,
    I'm using a set of ARP head studs for my new engine and I have a question. I'm tall filling the block with hard block and installed the studs along with an old head gasket and TFS a460 head to pre-stress the block while it sets up. Not knowing any different I torqued it to 140 lbs. Then I found the instruction sheet that came with the studs. It explained that the proper torque would be 144 lbs w/arp moly lube ( which I used ). It then went on to say that to account for the expansion of aluminum components, one should torque to 115 lbs. My question is, am I ok to pre-stress the block at 140 lbs during the hard block process ( since the engine will be cold ) and then torque to 115 lbs for final assembly? Or do I have it all wrong?

    Thanks in advance,
