Default 1969-70 boss block, windsor heads?

hello there boys and girls. was wondering if windsor heads would infact bolt onto a boss block. i know the boss blocks have the 3 x4 bolt mains, screw in frost plugs and are generally a bit beefier. I may have a line on one, but it would only be worth my time if i could put windsor heads on it. they came with 2.02 cleveland style heads originally no?

Boss 302 heads were canted valve castings with 2.23" I, 1.73" E in 69, for 70 the intake valves were reduced to 2.19". As for bolting on Windsor based heads, yes, they will bolt up, however if you have a real 69-70 Boss 302 in good condition, you could probably sell it to a restorer for enough money to buy a new Dart or Ford Racing block.
