when you decide what works best for you,ask how to get there. 350s are cheap

Take that $1000 you were gonna use on this motor,put it in a sock& then save up another $1000 & buy you a new L31 w/ a 5 yr/100,000 mile warranty. Problem solved !!!

You can get a new 2 bolt main L31 for $1875 or a 4 bolt for $50 more & free shipping.You can't build a decent engine for much less than that.

The casting # of the heads will tell you if you have the HO version 305 or not.If it's the HO version,you may have somethin to work with.

Most likely then you have the 305 HO. Unless someone replaced the heads.You should also have flat top pistons as well.With the rite parts & details,you can build a decent performer out of it.Best option would be,IMO,build a bulletproof bottomend,then blow it,or,add the bottle & go bust a few Mustangs in the ***** !!!
