ford 390 heads question
This is what I was told that my motor is that I got with a truck from the previous owner.
1. 390 .030 over flat top forged pistons
2. balanced crank and rods
3. 428 heads ported and polished intake and exhaust ports
4. ported intake to match the gaskets.
5. .512 lift 292 duration comp cam.
6. has a holly street avenger intake
was running a 750 cfm carb
now the head casting numbers are c6aer and the other one is c1ae and it also says 6090-a
My question is are these 428 heads how do I know and why are they different number?
One last question is that I though about selling the motor. It does need some gaskets replaced ( i have them just need installed) and could use some paint, how much would you ask? it ran when pulled ( ran really well) and thats about a year ago and has been stored inside.

Who ever ported the heads dident do it the right way. Anytime you port a head, the LAST thing you do is polish the intake ports weather its the head or the intake. When that is done, you lose the factor of the fuel being vaporized before entering the combustion chambers. Which equals solid fuel droplets entering the chambers. To fix it is easy, just make the ports rough. The exhaust ports on the heads need to be polished as much as possible. Helps with airflow and spent exhaust gasses not making carbon stick to the ports, which also helps with scavenging. 390's are always cool!
