Kenne Bell Olds head ?????

Does anyone know who ported the Kenne Bell Olds heads for them back in the 80's.

Precisioned Speed run by Dave & Karen Smith did a bunch. I worked for them in the 80s and did lots of heads for Kenne Bell.

I was sorry to see Kenne Bell leave the Olds market. The best fitting set of BBO headers I've ever owned were ones I got from them in the 1980s for my 1970 W-30. No hammering and they cleared the clutch linkage just fine.

Pretty much out of the automotive field, but still do a little CNC machining from time to time.

I visited precision speed back in 1981. You might have been the machinist working on a 455 4 bolt main conversion when I was in the shop.

X2
Their small block headers also fit well as did their 455 Buick headers.
I having nothing but good things to say about Kenne Bell and Dave Smith!
