Heads & motor

Cut my teeth on these-Im old school - so bear with me = Id port & clean the heads up- use 454 valves-yet - look closely @ the pistons- must be for closed chamber heads -!!- very diff chambers . Back in the day these were factory engines - usually had 10-11 - 1 comp ratios too. as for the 6000 rpm range - it will do that even wit a hydraulic cam & some nice valve springs - dont nessaraly nheed that expense of a roller cam. That motor should make the HP your after easily too.Id guess the 396 crank is due to having that? Easy to get a used marine setup with all the good parts cheap id guess? if needed.You dont mention what type intake carb ect you will be using? With that motor -likely need to use the higher octane pump gas also. Should be ba nice easyly done motor too-hap-y Roddin
