Yep, but the're just surface cracks and the last guy that ported the heads before i got them as well as Kaase's shop (where they are now) don't think they're a problem, from what i've heard it seems to be pretty common on these heads.

Default hemi heads

I've seen some of the later Ford hemi prostock heads that have the same combustion chamber as our heads but they have a dish that's been milled into them that sort-of mimics the old a441 Ford hemi prostock heads true hemi chamber. I was wondering why the current prostock stuff had the dish. This is obviously a modification that wasn't used on the earlier high hemi b441 prostock heads.

The heads Filucky posted are the Roberts design with a centered verticle wedge chamber which gives a double quench area (very effective). Some alky racers we know mill out the chambers to a full hemi, just like the older AR A-441 heads. I don't know what you mean by "milled dish"?

How many cc's can be taken out of the b441 hemi heads by chamber softening mods ? That's the milled dish I was referring to.

The dish is just to lower the compression ratio. I run B441 heads on my 645 inch Comp Eliminator engine and we had to add a dish to the piston to get the ratio down to around 15.8:1. The B441 head has a relatively small combustion chamber when used on large engines.
