Due to the L shaped water passages on the heads, do I hog out the intake water passage so there is not so much of an obstruction? Its about 1/4 thick there, cant be a water jacket. Secondly, what do I do with the hole in the heads, since there is no bolt hold for it in the intake? sealer? or leave it alone. I have pics but don't know how to post them here... Help!!!!

leave everything alone. Just bolt it all up. Make sure the gasket you use will cover the entire port. I have had a few mishaps with the incorrect gasket, filling the engine with water from underneath the intake.

Go to http://www.angelfire.com/ar/dw42/ and click on "Small block Ford Musings". There are many pages of info here but there is a couple of paragraphs on 351W heads on a 289/302. Use your web browser to search for keywords such as "351W heads" or something.
