Detailed Listing


Intake, Exhaust Port Sizes

1954 and 1955 324s' have smaller intake ports and valves than the 1956 engines. 1957 and later cylinder heads will physically bolt on to 1949 to 1956 engines, but the port matchup on intake maniflolds will be off because different cylinder deck heights are used. 1957 and later cylinder heads have larger coumbustion chambers and valves.
