  1. Hey Gang, Just after some info on scewing the rear window moulding to my XY sedan. There are 6 screws that hold the corner and side mould onto the window frame. Does anyone know how these are done? Do the scews go straight into the C-pillar. Is there mounting clips to fit for the screws? Can't find anything in the sevice manual for this. Thanks in advance.

    Can anyone tell me if these are close chamber heads? Also I can not see any markings on any pistons apart from a O and a 5 or a 6. Does this mean it is a virgin bore closed chamber head 302 Cleveland?

    Thanks guys for the help here a bit of googling coming up. I was looking all new gear in the heads all is OEM stock so don't trust it. Not sure of CAM shaft yet but we are wanting a cruiser with a bit of toe down low when we want some fun. Is it worth port pollishing these heads?? I think I will check out "Hypertec also make shorter piston suit 351 crank & 302C rod, flat top $438.61"

    Hey All, I have a 302 Clevland from an XB we are wanting to do an upgrade to 351 for a XY GS build. Anybody out there recommend which way to go for a rotating assembly upgrade "parts and bits"? Is it worth keeping the orginal heads for the build, I have read the 302 heads are good for a 351 convertion? Is there an engine builder in the Brisbane North area remomended to do this? Thanks in advance.
