Well as it stands rite now,all we got is a 283 short block.I'd say til you have the head issue decided,you really can't decide on anything else.Once you nail a head down & we know the chamber volume,then we can pick the piston & cam for the proper CR & even intake.So,I'd say that would be your next course of action.Decide on a head & the rest will fall into place based on that.If you choose to run what you have,your part selection is gonna pretty revolve around that.

Be really careful w/ used heads.Especially Vortecs.You could easily waste your money on cracked heads.There's no way of know for sure without havin em fluxed.Try to get a set locally.Not EBay or a website.If somebody could get rid of them locally they would,rather than try to sell them there.Also any savings you see on price is gonna quickly be ate up by shipping.IMO,the best way to search used heads is to call around to machine shop trying to find a set.

Sounds like you got alotta stuff just laying around.You could prolly trade around somehow,or,if nuthin else with the price of scrap nowadays,take some of the stuff that is unlikely to be used to a scrapyard.Plenty of ways to make a lil money for parts.

You are lookin @ approx $100 apiece to have any of current heads fluxed & properly rebuilt.If you end up needing valves,or,any other parts,or,machine work,that price will go up.You can get a set of rebuilt #601 HO heads @ Allied Motor Parts | Your Cylinder Head and Engine Parts Source for $145 w/ free shipping.They also have good deals on other heads as well.This just an example.You can get a lot better set of heads for $90 after you deduct the cost of having your current heads rebuilt.There are better heads,but,since max HP is not your goal,these heads would work & let you use your current intake.

A small error on a 283 makes a big difference in the rear cr. A small cid engine like the 283 is much more sensitive to a lack of real compression ratio and easy to get it wrong.
Check this before you select or buy cylinder heads for this motor.
So what is the complete casting number and condition of the "462 heads"?
oh i'm sorry completely forgot i'll get them in the morning i aint really checked but they look real clean i'll get the # & check condition for ya sorry thank you very much

Once you get the motor cleaned up,you'll want ck to see how far in the hole your current pistons are.Then pay close attention to the pistons you shop for.You wanna get the proper compression hgt & then deck the block & choose a gasket that will give you the best piston to head clearance.As stated earlier'if your head chamber volume is larger than optimum,you may wanna look into a dome type piston rather than flat top to get the best CR.Since it's been rebuilt before,the deck may have already had some removed,so,it's important to ck you piston depth before you tear it down.
