I have a 1997 Custom weld with a Marine Power 350 in it and am looking to put a set of Edelbrock heads on it. Does anyone know which ones I should order? It is a sportpac and it is carb'd but thats all I know.
Also, there is no V in the model code so I dont think it's a Vortec.
thanks

Why do you wanna put on the edelbrock heads?

You will want to determine what you want for a C/R, and also determine which pistons are in this engine, before ordering your new heads.... no matter which way you go.
Example:
Flat Tops offer no piston volume (other than what the valve reliefs offer), so the cylinder head combustion chamber volume will be a factor in determing C/R.
Any of the dished pistons will have a volume that must be known, and will become part of your equation to determine which cylinder head to use for a given C/R.
If you have a quench effect piston in this engine, you will want to know your deck height before ordering head gaskets..... If the quench is important to you.

Would Marine power not have this info if I gave them the serial#. Im not partial to edelbrock but they're cheap and they sell them across the street from my shop
