head casting would indicate a 68 - early 70

Need a pic of the piston to help

Should have a rebuildable head - could NOT gyarantee you could just bolt it in and go

Question 472 piston and head

Great. How much for the head? And any luck on a piston? Even a stock take out from a rebuild would be fine. Not drag racing .....just cruising in the old boat.

Head $100

Don't have any "loose" pistons so will need to dissasemble a core to find one.

Only $10 for a used piston. It would still be attached to the rod.
If interesed in both parts will dissasemble one this weekend

Default 472 piston and head

There is a large all gm swap and car show this weekend so I am going to look there to save on shipping so don't pull a piston yet. I will let you know next week if I need it. If i dont find anything i will probably take you up on the deal. Thanks for your help

Hello again. how is the supply of 71 472 pistons and 69-70 heads looking these days? I am selling the car and the new owner is interested in buying the parts from you. Can you e mail me at BMatzdorff@charter.net ? That way i can get some contact info for you and maybe a number to call. Thanks for all your help.
