Many weeks ago i started the winter breakdown of my 350 SS to add some "correct parts". Thought the heads could use a freshening up, off to the machine they went(3947041)Well i got the call, one head has a nasty crack. I started a search and could not come up with a single or a matching set.my question to all is, my cast date for my engine is oct 21 68, my engine build date is oct 24 68, original heads dated oct 3 and 9 68. Would a set of heads dated in late septemeber be possibly "correct" for my car?

I don't think 30-45 days in advance of the engine build is 'abnormal', although I haven't seen any specific 'lead times' for heads.   There is always an 'ebb and flow' to the supply chain which causes variations in lead times of various parts at various times.  Note:  even your original heads were 2-3 weeks ahead of the engine casting;  If you only need one head, find a head close in date to the one good one you have which should be less expensive than finding a 'matched' pair; even your original heads didn't have the same date (and probably few do even from the factory)..

Mike, I merged your two thread together since they're related, and yes, late September would be fine.

By the way, you might want to contact THIS GUY and see what the dates on his heads are.
