What's a ballpark rough value of a pair of 286 max wedge heads and rocker covers?
Many are cracked, need to be magnafluxed to insure condition, as cracked heads aren't worth much. Then, how many valve jobs, are the valves sunk? In general though IMO, I would say $800-$1200 for a good set with no cracks. Used to be a bigger deal before aftermarket heads were available, now pretty much just for restoring '62-'63 cars.
Thanks, That's why I'm asking. They have no visible cracks, but not tested.
just seen a set owner says they were on a stock eliminator class car price was 5000.00$
If you want anything for them, I’d have them checked first. That way a potential buyer would know what he’s getting.
Moparsquid ok, I'd be glad to sell a good magnafluxed crack-free set for $5k. The other thing about the 286's is that they were heavily sold over the dealership counter during the mid-'60s and by far are the most common of the three MW heads. But, opinions are even more common, and I don't put any more value on mine, then someone else's that has owned and run MW heads.
I picked them up pretty cheap and just want to make some money to pay some bills.
I originally had a set but was told they had cracks (think I was screwed but that's another story) so went with the eddy victor max heads I had a total of around 3 grand in them
Do you have pics
I'll get shortly
Chooch, what are the differences between correct covers and the typical four bolt cover?
4 bolt on 62 mw looks like correct PVC have you had them maged
No, I literally just got them yesterday.
Looks like they haven't been off too long. Any history?
No idea yet. I'm trying to find out.
Other than the decal, none.
if you have a price in mind I might be a player right now im waiting on a reply from a seller with a set that's bare and port and polished
