The number closest to that I can find is 3998991, maybe that 8 is really a nine. Your heads were made Jan-17-1974. The number head that I mentioned has 1.71" IN and 1.50" EX valves. They were made between '68-'76.

(Info from Chevrolet small block interchange manual)

Sometimes unless you clean off the numbers really good with some sand paper they appear different.. 3's can look like an 8 or 9. 9's look like 3's and so on. I have had the same problem as you several times.. not a single place online shows my casting numbers and it ends up I misread the numbers. Good luck
