ID help. 361?

I got some parts in a deal today and was hoping to get some help IDing what I got. I was told it was 390 parts but of course everything is a 390 until you mic it or check tags.
I got a block with what roughly mics to a 360/390 bore. 4.050". Sadly no main caps.



Crankshaft that's tagged as a 361 ground .010/.020 (Mains/Rods) with a 1.750" shaft size.


Pair of heads. Was told there's something "special" about these but can't remember what. Could've been BS.




Box of rods, lifters and valves.



I'm not up on FE stuff so any info is helpful. Is it useful stuff for someone restoring a Bump or Dentside?

Block is good and usable for FE or FT use, but requires a distributor bushing to use with a non-FT distributor.

Crank is good for an FT rebuild.

Rods are same as FE, not sure what length.

Heads are FT only small valves and an exhaust cross over that won't work with FE manifolds.

Casting numbers will clear up any mysteries.

Looks like a complete 361 setup - not worth much to anyone unless they need to rebuild a 361.

Without main caps, that block isn't useful for much either, unless you want to make a coffee table. To find a set of main caps, and have it line-bored, and use oversized OD main bearings, that's a lot of work for a generally available FT block.

Same for the heads. Not much of a find, sadly.

I'm usually not so pessimistic, but I won't lie either
