The Gen 5 (and Gen 6) heads are net lash, 1-pc. rear main seal, the oiling gallery that used to run along the pan rail is gone, no mech. fuel pump, and the heads use a different coolant passage set-up.

It was only around for like 5 years- then they came out w/the Gen 6 w/roller cam, and IIRC revised cooling passages, etc. Some have mech. fuel pump, both the Gen 5 and 6 could be bought as a 502.

EDIT- The article you linked has the run down in much more detail, so you know more than most already!

yea the article was pretty informative but i think for me its not a bad deal got it for 500.00 and it has 80,000 miles on it runs great. no smoke no knocking overall i think not bad for $500. Well, later on down the road i will open it up and drop money in it but as for now i have the platform i want to build on. maybe not everyones fav block but i think itll work for me. the only thing that sucks is there is no boss for a mech fuel pump so when i get ready toput it in got to find out how to wire an electric fuel pump in my 64 impala. Anyways thanks for all the info!
