What can you tell from my heads and bores?

Post by rich112 »

In the process of stripping my 4.6

It appears to have non standard rockers.

Alas my cam is toast as one of the tappets is badly dished.

I'm running a Holley 390 on a JWR manifold.

Does the state of the combustion chamber, valves and bores tell you anything? A little rich on 7,8?
