Will a set of 73 2v heads have to have hardened exhaust seats installed or are they this way from the factory. Any info greatly appreciated.

For hard street/competition use with pump fuel, they should be. A lightly used street engine will most likely get away without them. It is basically an insurance thing.

you would have to put a boatload of hours on the motor to see any issues w/o the hardened seats. If this is an occasional racer or street car, you'll be fine. If you're re-doing the heads anyways, it won't hurt. But to pull the heads just to upgrade the seats, really won't add anything... JMHO.
