I tore my orginal DZ motor apart and Huh The guy doing my heads called and told me I had to come and check this out. This is the first time the motor has been apart so here gos.the heads are 186 castings,1.94 intake seats and 1.60 exhaust seats.strange,its gets worse.the combustion chambers are for 2.02 valves,now the kicker,it has 2.02 and 1.60 valves in the head?If I didnt see it for myself I would never believe it.could GM have screwed up when they built the engine? Huh

i'm not sure i follow... the 69 Z did have 2.02 and 1.6
so did the 67 and 68.

GM did produce the 186 heads in 1.94/1.5 versions... but not installed on Z28s.

How can you tell that it has the 2.02 combustion chamber vs the 1.94?

i'm not sure there is  difference.

thanks

Aaron

Were the intake valve areas of the combustion chambers machined around the valve pocket?

Here's a photo of the unshrouding cut in the chamber wall adjacent to the 2.02" intake valve in a 186 head. Are you saying that your chambers are machined like that, have 2.02" valves, but the intake seats are for 1.94" valves and it has 1.60" exhaust valves and seats?

Could have the GM 711, #5117 or the .040" Felpro.

If the intakes are unshrouded, then they would be factory 2.02's unless a machine shop has done this machine process sometime in the past.
