I have a set of 302 Windsor heads from an xy and wondering if they will fit on an EB 5.0.
The heads have been ported, fitted with 2.02, 1.6 valves and screw in rocker studs. Would be good if they fit as I already have them sitting in the shed from a previous project.

They should work. Might have to check if you can get the spark plugs past the header flanges coz early heads use big diameter spark plugs.

While the heads are off I would fly cut the valve pockets to suit the larger valves. You local engine reconditioner probably has a jig that allows machining without removing pistons from the block.

It saves any worries about piston to valve clearance, especially if a bigger lift cam is fitted now or in the future

Remember to run the right intake gaskets, they are different around the water jackets to the stock E7 heads

New hardened pushrods also needed
