I'm slowly moving along with fitting the Ryan Falconer head to my 292. One problem at a time.

Amazing project. Have you already drilled and tapped the block deck for the new head bolt pattern?

No it's going to take quite a bit of work to get the bolt pattern in. Tom Lowe just popped up at my house today. I'm about 10 miles off US 30 and he was going by on his way somewhere else and just slid her right in. It was great to see him again and we of course got lost in inliner talk. He agrees with me that this can be done. It may just be easier to just shave the top down a bit and plate it. Then sleave it and have a clean slate. Tom measured one of the valves and I think he said it was 215. I'll get the flow numbers on it when the rest of it comes.
