416 casting heads are the most recommended heads for the 283 mouse.
They`ll work great.

they would work if thats what you want to go with. i would go with e-street edelbrock if you are willing to spend the money.

If all it needs is a re ring i would use what ever the machine shop recommended and.buy thru them. That is if you are having them do.the honing.
