How to ID GT40 heads?

11304 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  ujt389
I just bought a pair of Ford Racing GT40 aluminum X305 heads from a dealer in USA. The stickers on the Ford Racing cardboard boxes says they are X305 (58cc) heads, but how can i really know they are? The heads have "X302" and "F3ZM" casted into them. According to the FRPP catalog X302 heads have a 64cc chamber ? Shouldn't these heads have a "X304" casting??

Boxes were unopened, so I doubt anyone switched them with other heads. Also there were no instructions included, should there not be any with this kind of parts??

Thanks, Jan

Welcome! And, Good question... I'm sure someone has a book and will chime in sooner or later.

From the 2005 catalog:

M-6049-X302 is the GT40 64cc empty head.
M-6049-X303 is the GT40 64cc assembled head.
M-6049-X304 is the GT40 58cc empty head.
M-6049-X305 is the GT40 58cc assembled head.

From what I read elsewhere in this forum, the X302 empty head is the base casting for both the 64cc and the 58cc heads, but do they all have a "X302" casting number?

I believe GT40 heads have 3 vertical lines cast in the front face of them (where the accessories bolt on), while the GT40P's have 4 lines.
These are the aluminum ones that ford racing sells, and they do not have the 3 lines (at leased I have never seen them on my set). I would just cc the heads to be sure.
