Thumbs up finally found s/b

I"ve been looking for a S/B for awhile now.When I went to deliver the 80 s/c I sold there was a 78/79 Ranger XLT parked out back.Its a 4x4 with a few problems.When you start it the oil pours out as fast as you can put it in.Rear main seal and plenty of knocks top and bottom.But its all there and a good candidate for one of my 429s.Just gotta wait for the guys kid to come home next weekend.Hoping to get it for 8 or 900 bucks.

Dennis sounds like you know your 385s.What I have is 2 blocks C9 and D1 I understand that these can be either 429 or 460 but I have 2 429 cranks.I know this as the casting # on the cranks are 4u and 4uab which tell me 429.What is ab and would you use the older block.I was told that it might have a higher nickel content?????? dont understand that

D1 = That just means it was designed in 1971.

What is the actual Day of casting ?

Look for something like this *1G23 *

I would use the early block, as i believe (not sure, but if you know dennis correct me if i'm wrong) it has a shorter deck height which in turn gives you a high CR, but it could the early heads that give the higher CR, i'm not totally sure.

I think your right on the early block has a short deck hieght.And you have to use the early push rods.But i dont know if the d3 head will work with the short push rods.Help Dennis.I talked to the kids dad today and it sounds like the truck is forsale at a good price
