A12/a14 head PLEASE HELP !!

Post by iamkiwiana » Fri May 12, 2017 9:09 pm

So i purchase an engine from a mate, it's
an a12 with a14 head, ported, planed, kelford racing cam and valve springs..
BUT... it didnt come with all valve train, only the valves and springs.
So the question is will my existing a12 head gear work on the a14 head ??
(pushrods, rockers etc) :dance:

A12 push rods will work with A12 Block, head will be fine. Is it Front Dizzy or Mid Dizzy, oil galleries to the Valve gear are different, this could be an issue.
