headers questions

How can I tell the difference between Oldsmobile small block and big block headers ?
These are ceramic coated and I cannot find any manufacturers name, just some partial numbers.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, DLP

Welcome to the site. Yes, the BBO engine has a deck height 1" taller than an SBO, therefore the BBO header will have that 1" difference.

I just wanted to introduce myself.
I've been an Oldsmobile owner for quite a while.
I've owned 3 69s two of them were Cutlass S and the other was a 442 post,(having sellers remorse on that one.
1 72 Cutlass Supreme and currently a 67 Cutlass Supreme/442.
Thanks for inviting me to join your site.
Looking forward to interacting with other car people.
