I am looking a buying a 347 with WP heads on it I am curious if the heads have a different intake bolt pattern. I am going with a Holley carb on a performer RPM manifold. I would like to know if I am going to run into any problems with these heads.
Thanks
Tom

I have had these heads on wvcat for about 8 years and I'm running a performer rpm. The intake pattern is the same and so is the exhaust. The only problem I have encountered is the plugs are on a different angle. I am using hooker comp headers and the plugs are real hard to get a socket on, I ground down a thinwall plug socket(motorcycle type cheapo)and it still doesn't want to go on. On the bright side I can run regular unleaded without a ping and I have 10,5 compression. Oh yeah my motor is a 351w(30 over).

Thanks, WVCAT. I had some doubts about the intake fitting the heads. I think I'm getting a good deal for a 347 stroker with these heads, headers, intake, valve covers timing chain cover, double roller chain, HV oil pump and oil pan all for under $1900 assembled. This is hydraulic roller motor besides.

It sounds like you are getting a good deal to me. I spent over 2000 when I built my motor and I assembled it. One thing to consider is you are going to be dropping from a 351c to a 302 and the accesories will not bolt up with out new mounting brackets, I think everything else should work other than a little exhaust work. I'm not sure where Bethlehem Pa is but I'm about 35 miles east of Pittsburgh, I work in Weirton WV.
Good Luck
John

Bethlehem is on the East side of Pa. near Allentown, Oh, the accesories won't be a problem. No P/S, no P/B only the alternator to worry about. I am switching to headers also.
