Do any of you know if these heads can be modified in some way to work on older engines? The water flow is reverse, so the heads don't have the end water jackets that run thru the intake. Any ideas?

Funny thing, my dad has a set with a old style intake on it. He had to drill and tap the heads to bolt the intake down. Then he tapped out the front holes for fittings to run the water in. Now you have to do somthing with the front water passage they dont overlap. Im sure there is more he did and hes not done its just sitting on a mock up block....so ill let you know what he finds out.
