yea i honsetly aint expectin much just more thought it be neat to have rthe motor & just wanted to get details on it before decided to use thanks very much for the help

Thats not what I was trying to say.Buy the best carb for your application.
I dont buy parts on sale,I find the part I need or want,then shop around for the best price.Ive used lots of carbs over the years and most of them do the job they are supposed to do.I have favourites based on 1) easy to work on,2)easy to get parts and gaskets,3)the systems dont need constant fiddling,,,,

for me,and probably not for you,,I like to use Holley double pumpers that have removable air bleeds and metering blocks,not metering plates.I dont need a choke for my car as I dont winter drive much.( I have a pick up truck for bad weather)
I dont like the Holley short bowl systems,and I dont like the Holley bimetal choke system.
Other brands are also good,just not something I would buy for high performance...

Northern has some decent 283 engine kits for about $300.You can upgrade your cam & any other parts in their kits.These kits will work for a good stock rebuild.Before you get too far tho,go get that bottomend outta the barn & get it ckd out as much as possible.If ain't worth buildin,no sense in wastin time & energy.If it's good,then take it from there.If not,then it's time for Plan B.

Yes, but the work needed to relieve the bores should not be considered for a street or street strip engine. Valve cuts on the top edge of the bore get very close to the top ring on the piston, and also thin the bore walls quite a bit.
If you bore the engine out a 2.02 head will clear, but not with stock bore.

The piston tops should have any overbore stamped in the top.Mite have to clean it off to see it.Be careful with that wirebrush.Not a good thing to use on certain parts.
