Anyways, Frisco, The block is from a 1980 Chevy truck I believe. So with the specs you listed for the original stock 69 block do those also pertain to the 1980 block as well?
Yes, the factory specs would still apply. Check my post #7 above. Setting the timing somewhat higher (within a reasonable amount) than the factory specs for a stock small block Chevy engine will help overall performance.
