Default How to tell what head it is?????

Got a head from a friend.
It's a 2400, 12 valve.
Is there a way to tell what year, and what it came out of?????

That's quite a benefit from a friend. Try looking at them, and their descriptions here:

I don't think there is any difference in KA24 heads - slight cam differences in the truck/car version with a different intake setup respectively - but I am pretty sure the head itself is the same across the board.

It is suppose to be for a hardbody truck.
No idea what year.

SOHC, 12 valves.

90-97 hardbody, but could also be from an early 240sx or an early Altima.

Ah, yes. The classic reacharound. You're going to need that one to get the EGR pipe out.
