Yes, I have eye candy envy. Tried to locate a finned aluminum head when I built my 359, but was lucky enough to get a stock aluminum head in good shape. The manifolds I used to make my (2) 2 bbl. manifold...they were AMC/Jeep six cylinder log manifolds, available on eBay for around $100 each or less. They are taken off the 258 AMC engine installed in Jeeps and of course the Jeep guys all want a four bbl. The photos are on my phone, I'll try to post them later. Lots & lots of tig welding...Oh, here's a tip for the head install...lay a machinists rule on the milled surface...if you have more than a few thousandths of bow, slowly torque the head down over weeks. Use allen head studs for head bolts and a good composition gasket. Do not over-torque!!!
