Early FHP heads

Are the early FHP heads (1996) known to be a good replacement for original heads? any problems known about the castings, or fitting, I have a set, and the pushrod tubes are so tight to the head they are not spring loaded, they are a force fit, from clearance issues, I am considering making more clearance for the pushrod tubes with a grinder :shock: any ideas :idea:

Re: Early FHP heads

Perhaps you could grind the pushrod tube instead.

Re: Early FHP heads

They hit on the spring loaded outer sleeve and they are pretty thin, and I would hate to make them oval shape, These erly FHP heads seem to be beefier (maybe out of spec.) every where, hade a problem putting in the distributor base after heads were on :o had to grind on the bottom of dist. base to get it in, whith original heads the dist. would go in with heads on.

Re: Early FHP heads

The Early FHP heads are designed to use the FHP cast rocker enclosures, not the stamped style OEM units.
