Candoo and macstang ,
Thanks for the kind words, This medium often makes it difficult to know a person's background/experience. I have a bit of experience from racing Fords since '66. I hung around with the late Dyno Don and another Pro Stock racer , the late Lee Hunter during the heyday of Pro Stock racing and 351C engine development. At the time I was working for a camshaft company that was doing development with them. When Jon Kaase came on board in '76 we became friends too. The 351C 4 barrel and Boss valves are prone to breakage , especially the exhaust valves. I never run the exhaust valves even in a "restoration". I have not had a problem with the factory intakes ( single groove Boss style) but others have. The stock valve problem is not a myth.
