rebuilding my 383

seem to be having a timing issue with this engine. keep beating the bearings out. right now i forgot alot of teh technical data,like deck height and all and what the timing was set at, its been out of the car for a while..
a little run down of the engine
kb 134 pistons .060
5.7 rods
eldlebrock performer rpm cam,and intake
holley 750 carb
compression was running about 230-240 on the simms test right before i took it apart
as far as heads not really sure,this is where im looking for some more info.
casting ##3911032,which listed in my aera book,is 283,307 or 327. mild port and polish,2.02 valves. thinkiong of going with a set of vortec heads,with these specs,

Combustion Chamber: 64cc
