OK, now that I have these home I have one question, am I on my own for intake gaskets? I have a good stash of R3 head gaskets so I am good there.

I am sure that either Jon Myers or Phil Harris sell R3 intake gaskets.

Congrats on being quickest on the draw.

It's part of Studebaker Racing lore that standard heads can be made competitive with R3s. These aren't factory R3 castings, but It would be very instructive to put them on the flow bench and compare them to our best efforts with stock ported heads. It would be doubly instructive to flow them with the alumium repo R3 intake attached, as the OEM iron intake is the choke point for ported standard heads.

After getting them home and analyzing both my current builds I realize these heads would be over kill for either one. I will offer them up for what I paid for them. They were done by Ted Harbit about 12 years ago according to the owner, not Nimesh. He ran them for a brief time but they were over kill so ho took them off, cleaned them up and they sat on the shelf in AZ until this April. If I keep them, they will sit on the shelf for a long while and I would rather see someone use them now. I can ship but I would rather you came and got them. PM me if interested or email, jakammer@charter.net.
