Hey guys,

I have a question about blocks and heads. There are romeo and windsor blocks, and romeo and windsor heads. Do they have to match or can romeo heads go on a windsor block, and vise versa ?

Thanks

I think so,

I believe the windsor's have more bolts in the valve covers too.

windsor and romeo heads and blocks are interchangable as long as you get the correct valve covers and timing cover bolts for whatever head you use.

windsor blocks are said to be slightly more stout...come with 8 bolt crank (not forged) and have a different main cap bolt system (something with the side screws) that adds alittle strenth.

I had windsor heads on my romeo block...now i have windsor heads going on a Teksid Cobra block.

Bingo! :banana:

Thanks droptop, thats the diff between blocks that I was thinking about ( The main caps side bolts). I knew there was a diff but could not remember if it had to do with the heads. Great so any head with any block, beauty.
