V8 Cylinder head rocker style

I've been trying to find a couple photos showing the diference between the two rocker styles on V8 heads. 71 and older are a single rocker bolt style while 72 and later are a bridged style. I've found photos of the bridged type but would like to see what the factory single looked like. I hear the single is easyer to set up roller rockers on. I'm mainly intrested in how the head castings themselves differ as I have several 360 engines to choose from.

easiest way to tell is the casting # all 319 starting #s are the early heads with adjustable valve train.

You can have the bridge style head machined for screw in studs, then you can run stud mounted adjustable rockers.
