heres some pictures of my home ported DOVE-C heads finalized

here's some pictures of my d0ve-c heads that i done so far. these are my first set of iron heads that i successfully completed. :lol:

i tried a set of small block GT-40p heads and broke through a water jacket and got seriously discouraged. however thanks to this site and the wealth of knowledge that many of you all have i gathered my courage back and successfully completed these here which looks very good in my estimation.

in the next few weeks i will post how good they actually are will they get machined and flow tested.

the valves will be 2.25 intake and 1.770 ferrea 6000 series part numbers F6190 and F6176.

5.344" lenght intake and 5.110" length exhaust. the exhaust are pontiac offerings and are actually just a hair larger than the more common 1.76 ford valves.

It was a whole lot of work to say the least. the short turn does not look funny. i have to try harder to get better pictures for these pictures really look distorted.

i'll try later on today. 8)

i updated the pictures to include shots of the exhaust.

it's not a professional job but my first heads that i totally done and i do not feel bad about them at all. in fact i'm proud of myself and my 4 year old son on the job we done. he painted the heads so i could scribe them and as well as blowing out the ports with air to clean them out and i also helped him to hold the die grinder and worked over a few ports.

what a great kid and i would do anything for him! 8)

That is an awesome job on the head. Iím doing a set myself and it donít look as good as your. What bit did you use by the valve guide? This seems to be an issue for me. Great job and thanks for the picture this will help me out a lot.

why thank you planotorino!!! i'll pm you the pictures of the bits that i used and where i used them at, but a short answer to your question is a flame tip carbide bit.

i tried to mimick to the best of my ability some of the top tier head gurus on the internet and i got a whole bunch of knowledge from www.reincarnation-automotive.com

for just a nominal fee of i believe $20, that site gives you a wealth of knowledge concerning cj/dove type cylinder heads.

i also went to different manufactorers that sell cylinder heads and people/companies that port cylinder heads and looked at their designs and tried to come up with something for these D0VE-C heads that i have.

i must admit it took alot of work and patience but i do believe that they came out decent for my first successful port job.

the cross section of the intake ports are 1.81" w x 1.91"h and that was measured on the plane between the pushrod holes (w) and from the roof to the bottom of the crest of the short turn (h). the intake ports are ported to cobra jet felpro 1231 gaskets.

i'm waiting for my valves to show up so i can finally get these finished up and flow tested.
