Question 400 Cylinder Head Casting Numbers

I have two heads for the 400.
One casting number is D5AE-A2A, the other is D5AE-A3A.
Are there differences between the two?

My guess would be different years maybe, or perhaps casting places. I think i saw that all cylinder heads on the 400 were the same from 75 on? Check out bubbaf250's website. Good info there.

The first two digits indicate decade and year. In this case 1975. I believe the factory tolerance for 2V heads was 78 to 80cc.

The A2A & A3A are engineering revison #s. I don't know of any place to find out exactly what was changed but I'd suspect they're virtually identical. I wouldn't hesitate to use them on the same motor.

Compare the exhaust passages and the area around the exhaust valve seat. Look for the air injection boss "bump" and a restricted exhuast port.

Yes there were two different heads for the 400...

They are the same as far as chambers and valves go...

The difference is that one has a rotator thingy on the exhaust stem, the other one doesn't.
