  • Cyl Heads on the 352

    This is pretty much a sanity check, but a friend just got his engine back from the rebuilder, and the heads are reversed from their original position. Right head is now on the left. I know the head gaskets are right and left oriented for coolant flow, but were there any differences in the heads?
    Thanks

    FE heads can be used on either side.

    Head gaskets are identical. They simply flip over but 'front' always remains in the front. Heads follow the same assembly as rocker shafts where the pair have no LH or RH. FE pistons, rods and bearings are not 'hand' specific except on the MEL 430 where the original domed pistons are in two sets of, four RH and four LH.

      Thanks Dave. I was pretty sure that was the case, but just wanted to make sure.
