Hi All,

I'm hitting up the local Pic-N-Pull this weekend and will be looking for some 305 heads with casting #416. I really don't want to pull every valve cover on all of the 80-86 Chevy vehicles there. Is there a certain type / model / year that is more likely to have the 416 casting?

Thanks in advance!

For the 416, you will likely need to look for a Monte Carlo SS, or an F-body with TPI or Carb ( HO Version).

I've got a pair of the 081 heads if you ever get to Vegas. Same head, but with Center Bolt valve covers and slightly different angle on the two center intake bolts.

Follow up!

I found a set after quite a bit of searching. They were on an 88 Blazer. Here is a list of vehicles that the 305 came in for reference:

Total time to search & remove, 4 hours (found some other goodies I was looking for along the way). Cost for both heads, $76.00. Now for some cleaning, paint and new gaskets all around.

Anyone else notice that these pull your own parts places have entirely too many broken parts? I mean, some moron who only wants the steering column from a 56 Ford P/U totally destroyed the perfectly good dash to get at it!
