I have a set of DOVE-C heads  max effort....

I took a head off the other day and noticed that on the to of 3 of the Exhaust ports there are small holes threw the casting.out by where the header bolts on.( about 3/4 of an inch in from where the header bolts on) I have no idea how long its been like this..  

WIll it hurt anything?

Is it just broke thru into the head bolt holes? That not an Issue.

Sounds like a break thru into the thermactor port... not a big deal either.

You can shove a rod down the port from the end of the head if the hole bothers you or even braze them.
