I've got a guy offering me a used set of iron Windsor Jr heads (complete). They come with roller rockers and head bolts. The only thing that I'm concerned about is that they have 25k miles on them. He's offering $475 delivered. What do you guys think about that deal? Should I go for it?

Not too shabby. Will he guarantee them? (from cracks or defects)

The rocker arm studs should be 7/16" but I recommend replacing them to ARP of the same size. They cost me about $92 at summit. The single springs should be good to about .560 lift or so. And the double springs version should be good to .600 lift.

Has there been any work done to it?

As a price breakdown, you're basically getting them for $200/head + $75 shipping. Remember they are cast iron and heavy to ship.

Summit is selling them for $309/BARE head and $449/Assembled head.

Oh, and do a little research on the headers you plan to use. The only header compatible with my car was the Hooker Super Comp 6111. $325.00

It'll add up.

No work has been done to them. They were bolted on and then taken off 25k miles later. He said they were on a street 302, not a race egine. The price is less than half what what a new set would cost when you add in the rockers.

Didn't realize there was a problem with headers. They would be going on a 302 in a 69.

Hedmann and/or Hooker WILL have a header for you. The main issue is spark plug clearance. Look for your application on their website catalogs and read the foot notes.

I didn't see it came with rockers. Are the head bolts ARP as well?

Erik

p.s. Make sure to call if in doubt.

Not sure of the brand for the bolts or rockers. I'll get more detail from him today.

I've already purchased an Edelbrock Performer intake on ebay and I'm working on a Holley 1850 carb. Will those be adequate for these heads?

Here's more info.

The heads are cast iron and come with 1.6 ratio moroso roller rockers and ARP head bolts. The heads cost me $700, the rockers were $200, and the bolts were $90.
