Yes, but the valve & combustion chambers are much smaller & maybe the intake & exhaust ports too. Nothing to gain by this only a little more compression & less hp. Alternative, have a cylindar head shop re-do them (valves, guides, valve springs,resurface) but it's going to be expensive. Cheaper to find & use 350 heads.

Search around cylindar head services weld cracked heads now with cast welding rod.

Don't do it. It raises compression and it will spark knock like hell if you don't run high octane and adjust for it properly.
