How to Identify a Mopar 440 Six Pack Cylinder Head
The best way to identify 440 Six Pack or Six Barrel cylinder heads is to check the casting number.
How to Find the Six Pack Cylinder Head Casting Numbers
The casting numbers are a raised seven-digit number. They are typically found in two locations on the head.
- The first location would be on top of one of the intake runners. If the cylinder head is still bolted onto the block, the valve cover has to be removed to read this casting number.
- The second location is on the underside of the head on an intake runner. If the cylinder head is still bolted onto the block, the intake manifold has to be removed to read this casting number from underneath.
The casting number location is typical for most Mopar RB-series big-block engines.

For the past 40 years, I’ve been studying and researching Mopar engines and cylinder heads like the 440 Six pack. I torqued my first 440 heads 38 years ago while building my first Mopar engine.
In addition to my personal experience, I’ve read books, articles, magazines, watched videos, attended seminars and spoken to other Mopar experts to expand my knowledge.
