Re: brake issue

I agree with AFX,I think the gutted block is causing your issue!Most major mail order outfits carry residual brake pressure valves,they can be installed anywhere in the system,try just the fronts first!!Also check that the link from the pedal to the master is the correct length [just barely contacti...

Re: 351W heads on a 260

I agree with Anthony,keep the 260,then swap in a 289-302 for way more power and parts availability!!The head bolts are the LEAST of your issues!! JMO , ROY.
