    Are these work keeping? Will they work on a 350? They need rebuilt. Here's what Mortec says:

    I would throw them in the junk pile, those chambers will shroud the valves too much and they won't flow very good either. Also if you used them on a 350 be prepaired for running race gas as the compression ratio will be too high for any pump gas without pinging.

    Ok, thanks. I was wanting to junk them, but I always check things first so I don't throw away "good" junk.

    I would not invest time or money on those heads, If they need much work, machine shop costs and springs etc. are gonna run close to the cost of much better heads.
