Its an engine
 
Hope this doesn't get moved to obscurity....it is after all, an engine ;)
Motor was so clean when the old heads came off, I could actually clearly read the pn# on the top lol.....speedpro flat tops, 30 over. New heads installed tonight with arp bolts, intake is just sitting for hood clearence check but had to snap a pic.....so happy! Will hopefully have running saterday......then goes to have the hood painted matte black,and the wheels powder coated black.....thats all for now, I'm sure I will have Carb and timing questions soon for here.

I just burst out laughing...
TDC was verified with a stop before I pulled the heads, balancer is accurate
Cam was already installed and i left it alone and did stay with 1.5 rockers as per your recommendation
Valve adjustment I haven't yet had a problem with on past builds, and do use the "jiggle up and down" method as opposed to spinning them
Carb, well in theory it should have a VC instead of the 750dp but I always prefer mechanical and have had success making them work for me.
Drop base I have, and the hood looks like it closes with a 1/2 inch to spare even with a 1" spacer
Vaccum leaks.....don't know yet but lets hope not
HEI has been modified by previous builder, has a 15 curve and is all in by 2500
And i left the short block as is, stock crank, "pink" rods, speedpro hypers, zero decked, lots of expensive machine work and arp throughout. With receipts to verify and approx 8000k since it was done.
So will hope this goes smoothly the rest of the way. Still have to reinstall exhaust, set lash, intake, dist, plugs, wires, fluids, pushrods should be here tommorow, so aiming to fire it saterday.

With everything you have been through with this,can't think of anyone more deserving of clear sailing from this point out.
