They only other place I think it could be is under the guideplates. I pulled the valve cover and saw no identification.
Those are a set of the "off-shore" pieces. They are manufactured by the same "Chinese" foundry producing the BB's also.
The performance you can get from those heads you have there should not be under-estimated, we have them on a number of 383" SB's over here producing in the neighborhood of 440/450 HP with an older style Edelbrock "Torker" intake.
These heads are normally taken from the boxes, checked out for any issues, installed on the units, dynoed, and sent down the "pike". Not a single issue to date. An excellent "budget" head that delivers!
Thanks, Gary in N.Y.
P.S. With some "massaging" on these we would able to get up to the 475/485 HP range on the 383" H.R. platform. The BB's we opted to not get involved using. Had 2 sets in the shop awhile back and returned both after a "visual" check and some initial testing on the flow bench. Too much "prepping" to handle them! The BB's are numbered PC3021's.
