these heads flow better than the stock ones and what about the older
pre-'65 352 heads?

Be aware !! The GT Heads have a unique exhaust bolt pattern. Will not
interchange with either standard nor CJ manifold bolt patterns.

I've used about all major brands. Had good luck with all of them. PC &
TRW are probably the most common around these parts.

TRW does not exist anymore. They were bought by Federal Mogul a few years ago. FM makes decent parts though.

i think that the bore and piston groove condition along with the ring gaps
are much more imortant than brand. for most engines at least; just my
opinion.

I have a 79 F100 with a 300 6cyl, 3 speed on the column. The truck is in good
shape but the motor has about a million miles on it. What is a good source
for information about changing to a 302? A friend of mine said a 302 will
mate right to my transmission and bolt right in. True? Things to look out
for? Bill Jeffreys
