Any 427 Chevy fans here?

PostBy: Jackman On: Thu Sep 22, 2011 4:56 pm

I am a Mopar fan but I think I scored big on some Chevy BB heads...... I went to a yard sale found a brand spankin new never been installed bare aluminum 427 head part # #3946074 and two old well used 427 iron heads part #3964291

On a Google search the aluminum head #3946074 I found this info High performance, 69-71 ,open chamber 118cc, Hi Perf. 375 L-89, 430 L-88/ZL-1 465 LS-6 and 7.


The Iron heads also come up with a Hi Performance application,
3964291 1969-70 396/402/427/ Closed 109cc 396/402/427/454 large or small spark plug, they are bare have a recently been bead blasted and probably need guides and seats and seats ground , still they are a good start for any one in need of HP heads.


Anyone want to gander what there worth? I'll trade for a coal stove or firearms :D

jackman, put a set of solids in her--the hydraulic lifters had a tenancy to float out at 5 grand. ;)

The closed chamber iron heads are certainly desirable for a performance build with STOCK castings. Ebaymotors would probably be your best bet, or try a local hi-po shop.

That depends on what you use for valvesprings. ;) The "little" 350 in my Z28 didn't float at 7200 with hydraulic lifters, but then again the valve spring rates were around 370 lbs./in.

Ahhhh, then that's a whole different story ;) Outstanding find though---MOPAR huh?? They did make a kick ass tranny back when, compared to the old--slip & slide with power glide ;)

I was never a Mopar fan back in the days but you got to admit they had a good drive train, awful hard to beat a good running Hemi & you could change the valve guide in their trans without pulling the tranny. Only problem was they rusted out faster than the GMs & maybe even Fords.

They still do ... :lol:


Yeah throw those heads on eBay in an auction style ad. I'll bet they get bid up pretty good, although you'll need to assess their condition - your going to get a million questions asked, & it's better to be prepared & know what you've got. EBay shows no mercy for sellers - it's a buyers market. If the buyer is unhappy, you'll have your money extorted from your Paypal account & refunded to the buyer, leaving you high & dry.

Seller beware! :idea:

Good point Smitty, it would be wise to have the heads checked for cracks and warping prior to listing them.
