Using mostly stock factory parts. Easily build 300 hp engine.. Offered as stock in late sixties early seventies.. add modern aftermkt camshaft/intake/carb/ignition..

"T" bucket won't need much.. A 350 horse cam, Performer intake, 600 Holley and you got a white knuckle ride..

My bucket has a 383, .480 lift cam, 750 carb, 144 supercharger. It'll keep ya busy at full throttle with the 15" wide Sportsmans giving off a blue/white haze!!

All I hear is "Crazy old Bastard!!!!" slow this thing down..

This will be a very easy build. I wouldn't stress a 4 bolt in your application. Its wasted for someone that needs those extra bolts and is willing to probably buy it off of you for more than you can get a 2 bolt and a gasket set for.

If you could start off with a parts list of what you have already and we can figure out what you still need. If I were you I would go buy a late 90s vortec L31 engine and convert it to carb and be done. Great heads and roller cam from the factory. That should easily make 300hp. Just a thought...
