Does anyone know what the casting numbers on R1 heads should be?

Sonny on the racing forum asked me what mine were, but he hasn't answered so I am curious if my heads are really R1.

The head casting number is: 1557570 with a number "2" below it.

It is the same on both heads.

I just noticed that the 63 Lark 259 engine and my 64 Daytona 259 both have the same casting number except they have a "3" below the number.

Most of the '63 and '64' V8's had these heads and they are the R 1 heads also.

According to this, you have the correct heads...

Thanks Bob and Ted. I knew I had seen that chart somewhere. I should have known it was on your web site, Bob.
