Understand, but I got over that. I’m building a 4.6 Rover block with 300 Buick crank (gets me about 298 cu in) and adapting the Olds heads so it looks “correct”. Hollow pushrods fix the oiling differences to the valvetrain. Looking at using Harlan Sharp Buick V6 roller rockers. Also trying to score a set of the Merlin F-85 heads from England. Big bucks but improved flow and they have the right valve cover rail shape to look like an Olds 215 instead of a Buick or Rover.
