These heads were on a 428 cj i bought they are a set of C8AE-H's the motor was rebuild by a local speed shop 10yrs ago and was never run. I was wondering is that little groove or open area around the seat normal?

Those are not 428 CJ heads. The casting # C8AE-H is for 1968 - 1971 360, 390, 428-4V full size Ford or Merc. The same heads were also used on 390GT and 390IP.

The seats are a little deeper than necessary but should work fine if they are tight.

yes i know they aren't cj heads but they were on a 70 428 cj block. I was just looking for a spare motor for my 69 cj car. It was some motor some guy pieced together for a cobra kit car and didn't know what he had. I just wanted to know if the seats look right.
