    Default Chevy BBC 840 closed chamber heads 2.25/1.88 valves, dated 1969 Semi Fresh build

    pair of heads on a 454 bbc Engine i have.. they are 840 GM rectangle port Closed chamber heads.. . the heads are in good shape but do need a couple heli-coils on the Intake manifold side of Head .. they were on a running engine... date coded jan&feb of 1969 and have the Large 1.88 exhaust valves .. the intake i measured and look to be 2.25 but a chance they could be stock 2.19 size.. .. they are set up for a Hyd Roller cam around 600 lift.. titanium retainers complete, no rockers though.. will need about 2-3 Heli-coils on the intake side .. asking 800... these are the High comp version of the 990 heads.. in great shape.. fix intake threads and bolt on and go.. dropping compression from 11 1/4 to 10to1 is only reason for removing.. 800 or trade for Oval port aluminum heads plus cash my end??? 530-333-1047 Bill located near Sacramento Ca.

    I guess it never came up in our phone conversation that these were rectangular port heads. Date codes are one month apart, should work for a car collector, 1969. Might be worth checking car sites or ebay or stuff for price comparison?

    I was told they were 990 heads which are rec port.. i knew it was rec port, just didn't know they were Closed chamber with Domes till i opened it up.. These heads i have looked on ebay and they are priced pretty much for Bare castings anywhere from 799 for bare casting single to complete heads averaging 1500-2000+.. i figure i would do a quick sell and sell cheaper then any i found so i can get the cash to get what i need, Open chamber oval ports ..
