All engines from that era were dogs! That's the truth!

The 400 is easy to improve that's for sure. Use early heads (same as 351C 2V), or some minor porting on the later heads, and you've got a...

reebadoo,

Sorry for the delay. If you wanted to, it looks like the pushrods are especially rusty, and since they are relatively inexpensive - you could replace those. I don't think I'd try yo do...

Don't polish. That can be bad for street performance, and the "as cast" Weiand is good to 400HP or better anyway.

While it doesn't look good, I've seen worse.

If you are going to rebuild it - don't worry about it. If you want to run it, make sure to replace the intake manifold shield as they are neede with...

Yes. There should be no rust on any of those components. If they are rusty it is very likely the engine has suffered a head gasket failure an/or sever neglect. Also very likely there is rust in...

Yes, I have seen the different retainers on the exhaust valves, but didn't know why they were different.

$120 sounds like a great deal if your guy knows what he's doing. And it sounds like he does!

79f1dy,

I had a set of D5AE-A2A heads flowed, and they flowed 206CFM on the intake side, and the exhaust can be made pretty good if you want to do some minor porting.

I also have a D5AE-A2...

The SBC is a really good engine, but can't touch a Cleveland in all out competition IMO.

If you get it in a running car before you move would it need to have all the emissions equipment intact or just pass the smog test?

What cam is in it? Biggest thing I'd change while it's apart!

I would not want to run any engine less than 185 degrees. You can get sludge build-up if your oil never gets up to temperature, at least with conventional oil. I agree with j ballan - and wouldn't...

How much HP are you looking for? Vehicle/usage?

Alloy heads = stroker for sure.

You could build a stroker with a factory head, but you'd better be willing to spend some time porting them!

These heads really aren't all that bad, and if you round off the plateau around the exhaust valve guide you can get pretty good flow. They can be coaxed into decent performers, hope they work out...

Carb - AT LEAST a Holley 670 Street Avenger.

Lots of ARP, especially oil pump drive shaft.

If they are factory bolts - I would use the factory spec. 40-45ft./lbs. if they are ARP, you're probably okay... Don't recall what they spec. for sure.
