      Hiyas.. rainy day here, so model building it is. I am working on the ardun/scot combo. I have some pics, but don't seem to get many hits when I google it. I am getting ready to put the heads on, and am not sure which way they go. I am assuming that the "bumps go on front, but...I want it to bo right. The pics I have don't have the "bumps" on the front, but not sure that they are the same. I assume that the bumps have something to do with the valve train...so, they go in back. or the front?????

    The bumps should be in the front of the engine. I think the bumps on the front of the SMC Ardun heads are some sorta cover. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    ....and the "old" exhaust ports just get blocked off? It seems that there are several different types of ardun....some have cooling externally, and some are internal?

    ...I don't see the bumps I am refering to on any pictures that you linked. I am refering to the circle with a "nipple" in the middle of it that is the SMC ardun heads.

    Water-neck block off. Or you can drill and add your own neck to them. JohnW has a good pic right above showing these. They go in front.

    Exhaust is blocked off on the block you should have the 6 block off plates in the kit. Daniel

    Okay....a lot of the pics I have found didn't show that. I see some that have the water hooked up on center top of head? Some have nothing on front, and I think I found one pic that shows them in the back.....maybe unidirectional? I continue to look for more pics...thanks.

    If I'm not mistaken the newer style Ardun heads would have the water necks on the top center and the older ones up in front.

    Its really your choice Bign front on top. If you want to go with the top location let me know Ive got some necks that will work perfectly.

    bigN, the Ardun heads were designed to be unidirectional installation, thus the water outlets on each end of the head. In the last photo you posted the rear of the engine has the water outlet cover installed, while the front of the engine has the 45 degree outlet fitting for the radiator hose installed. Later versions of the head had the water outlets located in the center of the head, thus eliminating the need for those covers on the end of the heads.
    Good Luck with the build.

    Here I dug this out of the Rodders Journal. Front and back shots of the same Ardun showing what you asked about.

    I agree with Guido. That would look great in a 3 window hiboy, no hood, a black suede finish, wide whites and Olds Fiesta hubcaps.
