No I haven't... probably just going to keep the heads I have since it's an odd ball motor. I was thinking of 305 heads, but no go on those either and with being unemployed at the moment..... funds are tight.
Well I got the 305 heads and early 60s valve covers painted today. I even hand painted the script in silver using touch-up paint. Doesn't look too bad if I say so myself. I did find out that the exhaust 2 bolt gasket are really hard to find. AZ said no go, which I had got them there before. I think O'rielys may have them.. will find out tomarrow.
Headers, LOL why... it's a 265. Plus I'm still unemployed, but I have a job interview for a CAD position, so keep your fingers crossed.
Anyway, I got the heads surfaced as well as the block. Got it all cleaned up and put the head bolts on snug. Well I found out one thing. Heads have changed some in the 30 years. 265 heads all the bolts in the rocker valley are the same size. On newer heads (305) the outer middle bolts (4) are shorter.
