    I have no idea of what you are talking about. Be more descriptive. What kind of part is it?
    What is the casting number?
    What does it fit?

    That term right angle casting identifier is obviously someone's idea of techno-speak that I don';t speak.

    I was looking up the casting number from my heads on this website (but i have seen it on others too)
    http://www.mortec.com/castnum.htm

    My casting number is 3947041 and it says:
    ......"Right angle" casting identifier, 64cc chamber, accessory holes, good HP head

    So i am trying to figure out what i have?

    You have a decent 041 straight plug SB Chevy head. The 041X was better becuase it had hardened seats. This you can put the bigger valves and hardened seats into. With some good valve pocket, throat, and mild porting it will wake up a 350 - 383 cu in engine for the street. I like that llittle head and so do many guys running the stock classes.
