What head for piston

Post  jasonf on May 30th 2014, 9:56 pm

I acquired some 460 parts recently and I have a set of Mahle pistons. I am wondering how I determine what head they are for. I tried Googling the part number but could not find anything. I'm hoping one of you will understand all the part numbers.

If that wrist pin is parallel to the writing on the top, it is for a regular OEM valve angle head.

I assume you mean like this Randy? They should work with my TFS streets correct?

But with that big ass dish it might fit a SCJ / P51 head too. But you'd have to mock it up and check it.

Not knowing what my combustion chambers are (the heads were on the motor when I bought it) I hoped the "big ass dish" would help keep the compression down being a street car. Regardless, I got a very good deal on the complete kit with Eagle 6.7" H beam rods and a Eagle 4340 4.5" crank.
