Is it a pollution head? If so, i'm thinking A9X, VC HDT, VH SS Group III 308s. These would not be from a standard VB-VH 308

I'm not sure, I am from the torana forum and the guys think its from a 79 vb commodore of some type hi pro??? thats why I signed up with you guys thought I'd have a better chance of finding what these heads are from?

now I have a 74 L34 head that has a simular 'X' cast on it so I'm very certian its a geniune casting and not a fake.

but the dates (11th 1978) are throwing us on what it could be from.

I was reading another forum and noticed a mention of AMC mag iss 30 pg 28 and checked it out, have a read titled 'X Marks the Brock Spot' see what you think,


Possible Brocky / HDT modified?

well you say its a 1978 cast jobbies, i'm thinking A9X or Kingswood. These aren't from a VB Commodore, they never had a hipo 308(pity!). These are like B cast heads, built before them.

I dunno about the part number, i'll have a look tomorrow night. The 11th month 78 is in the VB era, but there was still HZ Kingers and the alike still getting built.

L34 Head. That style was the performance version right up to the Brock "B" cast items of the mid 80's. Prob the 2nd best of the early style heads behind the "B" cast. VN type whips them all. VN "D" ports are the best stock head you will get.
