Leroy how in the hell can a bridge work off a 92 for a 71 series when the valve spacing is different and a different angle

The 92 series are a larger bore hence the valves are spaced wider that is why a 71 series head will not work on a 92 or the 92 on a 71 series

The housings are marked 92/71 and they do work on both but a old 71 marked housing will not work on a 92 ,your housings are 92/71 fwiw

Some body is telling you wrong that 92 bridges will fit a 71 series

good luck and keep on looking I am
