    Milled down the ends .125" and now it lines up with the head ports perfectly. Re-checked the valve lash too.


    If only I could have been here to assemble it the first time.

    Did have to go find a different set of intake gaskets. The Felpro 1250S3 DO NOT fit 289 heads! It leaves the outside edge of the water ports exposed!


    Vs 1250S3

    Vs overlapped
