Default IHC 3-5 LA & LB heads and engine differences

Can LA & LB heads be interchanged? What are the other differences between the two types?

Thank you,

Both heads will run both engines. The main difference that I know of is that the LB head has drain holes for the oiling trough drilled right above the valve stem. There could be more differences but I don't know about them.
