I've got a '65 got that i don't know much about it's motor life or work done on it. It's a 389 with head code 092 and 3x2 intake #9778818 . From what I've found on the interweb so far is that the intake is for a '65 and the heads most likely for a '66. Is this combo ok a far as port matching etc.? While i'm at it, the engine has tall aftermarket valve covers on it, and the originals were included and both show indentation rocker "hits" at the top inside the cover. Don't know for sure but I don't think it has roller rockers. I assume that's why the tall covers were put on but I would like to go back original. It's been suggested to use thicker gaskets which may be a cure, but I'd like to know the cause if possible. The inside of the valve cover pic shows the dents. Any and all input on both Q's would be welcome. Thanks. P.S. Where does the stock ignition coil mount?? Mine is just kinda not in an original location I'm sure.
