The bolts go down in to a hole that's machined into the cover. Nice square and true fit. And the bolts/hardware are included with the covers.

Sounds like a good candidate for 3000 stall, 3.89 gears, and a 460 with a solid flat tappet and 6500 rpm redline. Back when ALL highway speed limits were 55 mph, I drove a 429 with 3.89's and a 3000...

Put em on ebay. $150+++ per pair all day on there. $450/pair isn't uncommon for good usable cores.

Interesting. I have to claim ignorance here.....but what kind of chamber does a NASCAR head have? Are they a wedge, open, hemi, semi-hemi? And what kind of power differences did you find?

No real difference between the two combinations. One has a deeper chamber, one has a deeper dish.

I suppose the flat top D3 might have a slight advantage over a full dish D0 combo, but you'd be...

Something else I haven't seen addressed is budget. Keep in mind that CJ heads and manifolds can run $3000+.

D0VE heads and some later model EFI pistons will get you the most compression. They're...

If that's the way you want to play it.....CJ heads, CJ intake, CJ exhaust manifolds (all ported), flat top pistons, custom cam ground from factory core, 460 crank/rods....or even a stroker.

D5VE would indicate 1975, but they only updated those numbers when there was an engineering revision, so it may be correct for 1978 but I don't know for sure.

Based on the rules, it should be the...

1970 trucks didn't come with 460's. They were all FE. Mine is a 360, and I think 390 was an option. Doubt either would hold a candle to a 460.
