I'm sure this has been beat to death around here but... I want to get rid of my 781's and bolt on a lighter pair of heads. Boat is a 73 stevens v drive with a 454. Used for skiing only so just looking to lighten it up some (sounds like about 80lbs) from the cast to the aluminum. I have a few quesitons...
Would I be able to reuse any of my gear off the old heads if I got a set of bare aluminum heads? Springs/valves etc, or will they all be differn't?
And yes... cost is a factor... best bang for the buck heads that are on the market currently?
Cam in the motor is hydraulic flat tappet.
Any place I can find good used heads?
If you need more info let me know..... don't mean to open a can of worms
