As I think about it, all the engines I've worked on have had the heads close to the block. Actually, .049" away from the block in many cases. Wow! A 302 with W-shaped valve covers? And a 302 with the valve cover held on by stove bolts? And a V6 as well as a 4 cylinder 302? And even an air-cooled 302!
Don't understand what you're saying Gary, this is stuff you've worked on?
Just giving you a hard time. If you identify an engine as a 302 by the "heads being close to the block" all engines would be 302's.
