General Discussion / Re: What is the earliest date C8OE-N CJ head have you seen?

   Grant I had a dealer cost plus 10% deal back then and the heads were $53 ea Bare with intake valves ( as they were serviced) as I recall. List was like $76. The parts were fine but the valve seats were "sunk" when compared to an assembly line head. They were for an NHRA "Stock eliminator" car and it took allot of 'manipulation" to get them to flow well and still be "legal". A service 428 block was about $300 my cost and a 427 SO ( hyd lifter) was $465 back then.

     Thank you. As I remember. I paid around $200 in late 1975 for a used set. They had all the seats & valves ground plus the guides replaced. I had to throw in a set of 14 bolt 390 heads also.

+1 Brian.

Fluid dynamics with regard to our cooling system is best left in the stock configuration.  The clearance between the impeller and the water pump back plate is important as well.  It's easy to replace the bearing and seal assembly using a hydraulic press.

+1, big letter font is later truck production or service part and most likely not original to this car IMHO.

I owned a set of C80E 6090-N heads with 1974 casting dates. The C80E 6090-N casting was so muddy it was barely legible. Again service replacement heads, sold over the counter. Because there was still a healthy demand in Ford parts departments across the country.

Thanks Brian, your correct in saying more flow is not always better. I am guessing the design being a replacement should be the same flow rate. Was wondering if anyone can confirm or has had a bad or good experience with the replacement?

Engine is basically stock, just running a 270H cam. Stock radiator and fan.

Regards Greg.

There was a set of CJ heads in the boxes from that era for sale at Columbus last month no valves, $1500 was the asking price.

I run the stock pump/impeller with my stock cooling system.  Preforms as expected and has never over heated or had any problems.  Flowing more may not be a good thing ?  Brian
