The 352/360/390's use essentially the same heads. There are some detail
differences between some castings, but for the most part they are the
same. The '58 Interceptor 352 had small 64cc machined chambers and were
the the first incarnation of what would later come to be the Low-Riser.
Except that the Low-Riser didn't get the small chambers, it got the same
chamber as the 352/390 standard head.

There were two chamber sizes and shapes through the years. The
squared-off shape yielded 69-72 cc's and the rounded-off shape 72-76 cc
if memory serves me correctly. The squared-off shape was shared with
the LR, MR, HR, CJ and TP, except that the chambers were a little more
open around the exhausts on the high-performance engines and yielded
76-78 cc's. The rounded ones I've seen were mostly on '66-'71 cars and
some trucks. I've never really figured out their place in the scheme of
things, did they burn faster? I don't know. I have seen that Edelbrock
used the rounded chambers on their FE head, so maybe it's a better
shape.

How much compression is needed? With the standard combination of 72 cc
heads, flat-top pistons and standard gasket you can get very close to 10
to 1, If you mill the heads and block you could get up to 10.25-10.5 to
1. Plenty for any pump-gas you can buy.

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Moonshine converstions ?

Recently a a newspaper article reported a man convicted of operating a
still to produce alcohol. He plead guilty and received a relatively
small fine telling the court that his alcohol was not for sale or
consumption, he was using it in his vehicle (volvo)
Is this possible? Is there a Moonshine conversion? What's the recipe?

Promise not to drink it...much

If these are 460 heads, then the number is probably D3VE-A2A (I have a pair
sitting on my garage floor), in which case the chamber size is 91cc.
Slightly smaller combustion chamber than 1975 and up which is 96cc and a
whole lot bigger than the 69 to 71 which has 76cc chambers. The D3VE-A2A has
2.08 intake and 1.66 exhaust valves, and uses stamped nonadjustable rockers.
If the heads are really D8VE-A2A then I have no idea what they might be.

hi you might want to check in the dark with the engine running by reving the
motor, watch for arcing around coil sounds like it might be your prob.

Thanks, I'll check the casting again to make sure it is the 3 instead of
the 8...

No, since you are using brass rods, you wont rust because its brass, not
iron or an iron alloy, like we use in the mig..
