    -70 472 heads on 500 -74 engine?

    Hello, could I put -70 #950 76cc heads on a -74 500 engine? Too high compression? Anything else? Does the carburator from a -70 fits on a -74 500?

    76cc heads on an engine that had 120ccs originally will give something near 13:1 compression. I can't think of a reason the carbs wouldn't be interchangable.

    If the choke set up is the same, it should bolt right on.
