Considering the condition of the truck, and who we bought it from, it's doubtful that that is the original engine. All I know is that it is an FE block, and could very well be anything from a 332 to a 428. All I DO know is that I was told it was a recently rebuilt 390 when it was purchased, which I doubt, but we'll see when I get it apart. Well, assuming it's a 390, we'll go back to my original question:
What would be a good buildup for the engine, with a budget of about $2000?
Oh yeah, another thing. When we bought the truck, it had a 2 bbl intake and carb on it, but he included a 4 bbl intake for the motor. Which of those engines originally came equipped with a 4 bbl?
