The motor was produced in the Tonawanda plant on October 18. The "HF" code was used on at least 4 different motors, so scroll down on this list and see HF....it's either a 327 or a 350.

We would need the casting number off the motor. It's on the narrow shelf that forms the bellhousing mating surface at the back of the motor on the driver's side. If the motor is in the vehicle, you may have to use a strong flashlight and a mechanic's mirror to see it. If the motor is out of the car, walk up to it and look down at the rear of the block just before the bellhousing mating surface. Also, you'll want to pull a valve cover and give us the casting number off the cylinder head. It's in between the springs/valves right on top.

I have the engine out of the truck now and starting to tear it down a bit. I did find out that it is a 327 from 1968. The heads are from a 350 (3986338x). I plan on rebuilding this engine to get over 300hp but nothing for racing. Just something to take to shows and drive on Sundays. I have a Powerglide transmission that will be going back into it. I have ordered my headers from summit racing (HOK-2131-3HKR Headers, Super Competition, Full-Length, Steel, Black Ceramic Coated, Chevy, Small Block).

NOw I am looking for the best combination of crankshaft, pistons, camshaft, instake, heads, lifters and etc. I do not plan on bored this engine out. Thank you for your time.

If you don't have the tools and expertise to measure the cylinder bores for being egg-shaped or tapered, haul the block into an automotive machine shop and have them do it for you. If the bores are round and straight, match the honing stone and honing procedure to the ring material and design. If the bores are egg-shaped and/or tapered, you have little choice but to bore and hone for oversized pistons and rings.
