    I picked up a power head yesterday and was told it is a Bridgeport. I have not pulled the heads but the block is stamped-2724 Z. Hope to get some feedback on what i have. Thank you

    most were 5 petal but they did build a 7 petal carb.. jus not many.. some called 'em formula's?, some called 'em carbed mod-vp's?.. few made it out to tha public.. mostly early '80's..
