What do you mean?

* ... just make sure they are the proper  stepped VW heads and haven't been
cut down ...

*Just trying to learn  from those of you, who have knowledge about things of
which I'm  unfamiliar.  I've got to continue to "build my knowledge base"
while  the talent is still around to impart it.

The 72-73 cars got a "stepped head", meaning there's a step where the  
cylinder seats against the head. This "step" lowers the compression ratio. The  
71 and earlier heads don't have that step, which is why they have a couple 
more  points of compression. By the way, the beetle head always had that 
step, which  was how Russ was able to tell what the head was off of (that's what 
he told me).
