The 0331 heads are bound to crack. Happened to me but it was the gasket and didn't feel like putting the old head in just invade so went with an Alabama Cylinder Head. Works like a champ now

Great looking bumper. I was just wondering about the mounting. how many bolts are holding that thing on? To me it looks like the three stock bolt locations on each side.....
