    hot rod

    i guess you could call it a hot rod but theres nothing wrong with a little more power right? The truck came off the assembly line with 194's and thats whats still on there, but i have a big cam in that engine with better pistons and i already run higher octane fuel so i figure why not look for some 202's. At this point I'm just trying to get it running down the road again tho. Cant do that pissing green stuff from your cylinder heads.

    I live in Kansas and have a couple of sets of 194's. One set is off of a 70's 350 and the other set is of a late model with the two piece rear main seal. Either set should work for you. I would sell them complete for $250 dollars. I took a set of 194 heads and made them 202's for my 350 in my plow truck and it cost me about $300. Let me know if you are interested.

    You may want to stick with a smaller intake valve to produce more torque. The bigger valves are more beneficial at higher RPMs. You can use all the torque you can get while plowing. Look for a set of 441, 487, or 993 casting number heads. Leave the 1.94 valves in them. Make sure they have a fresh valve job, and are surfaced and you will be good to go.

    I think I might have a set of old 883 (at least I think they're 883s) 194s in the garage. I'll have to take a look tomorrow and see if they are still there. Haven't touched them in years except to steal a valvespring for another motor. If I still have them I'll get a pic for you. They'll need to be cleaned up, but I think they were probably done and not many miles on them before I got them. They were on a hobby-stock race car for a short time and replaced with 202s. I think I only gave $50 for them. If they are something you're interested in I'll try to dig them out.

    I have a pair of heads that I believe are 194's. I'm in NH, and they are off an '87 fullsize blazer with the 350 TBI.
