Not sure of exact details, but somehow you take (3) 351C heads and cut and weld them to create a crossflow 6cyl head.
I used to watch 6cyl modified races. One guy with a Ford was fast enough to compete with the v8 mods.

Misc info from the net.................

Well, this may be old info, since the warning tells me that the last post for this discussion occurred >100 days ago. But, I just came across this website and happened to ask about B. Sizemor's 6. Well I have a 1977 copy of Pop. Hot Rodding's Engine Annual and it lays out an article on Bruce Sizemore's I-gas Pinto which reads "How to Build a 500 hp 6-cylinder Ford. And like the others mention, it was C.J. Batten of Romulus, Mich who did the furnance-blazed heads. It was 351C heads, 3 of them, cut up into 6 pieces, then furnanced blazed. As I recall from articles way back, this is an expensive process. THe new heads will have the same bolt-pattern as the original 6. The completed head is also wider so push-rod holes need to be cut-out on the block side, then sealed with "o" rings, etc. The push-rods needed to be extended using a 2-piece design w/a small aluminum sleeve (that slides in the block) to join the 2 pushrods. There is a lot he did to this engine, if you're interested but he kept the orig. crank, offset-grinding it to a smaller crankpin diam. which de-stroked it. Cloyes gears to replace the factory chain set-up and hand-built his own Accel BEI distributor by machining the housing ut of aluminum billet.
Im not an avid racer, but did my share of hot-rodding back in the 70's. I like to read/listen about old time Fords, so decided to join this website. 351 Clevelands and 6 cylinder Fords were my favorites. The stories about 6's like this article and Ak Miller's experiments w/the old Maverick six interested me a lot back then. Hence, I have kept some mags/articles on hopping-up old 6's. Well, hope this has been a little helpful to you...although this post has been up for awhile. good luck!

I have read up on some threads where they did similar stuff. The factory 4v heads can out flow some aftermarket heads. For the smaller 200 and 250 six the cross flow head from down under works wonders on them. Thefrenchtownflyer has I know two very fast 300 six fords he runs. One is in a yellow 33 willys.

We had one blow up before on the rig before. The wanted a electric one because it was "safe" long story short the heater shorted out internally allowing pressured water to enter the heater. 480 V direct short. It blew the ends off of it. Good thing it was a rental, lmao.
