I'm replacing a 235 with a 1973-75 292. The 292 came from a 1 1/2 ton truck, either Chevy or GMC. The only head difference is seemingly the rocker arm arrangement. The intake/exhaust head ports are the same in both heads. I thought when the "new" Chevy appeared, about 1963, the 194/230/250/292 had a separate port for each cylinder. Was I just wishful thinking? Thanks, Ed

It's been a long time, but I think I remember that the engines and heads used on marine engines had individual ports in the heads and manifolds. Pass car heads didn't. At least, that is what I saw every time I went over to Kay Sissel's shop.
