When I bought the car I had no idea what shape the engine was in, taking the heads off now I see I have +030 TRW L2316 forged pistons, and the cylinders seems fine with no edges. Camshaft and lifters seems fine. Heads are probably from a 360, casing number says 340 or 360 but there is a big 360 cast on there also. Gonna see if I can figure out what camshaft I have tomorrow, and take the oilpan off and check the crank and bearings.
Now, taking off the left head I get a bunch of coolant all over the place, seems like the head gasket (Feel-Pro I think) blocks a coolant channel so it stays in there, Is that correct? (or did someone use a wrong type of gasket). Found lots of problems taking it apart, a cracked sparkplug, double header gaskets (been leaking) 2 headerbolts broken so I have to drill them out later, big bolt holding the balancer on the crank loose (so the balancer was loose also) , intake bolts missing etc.
The number, on the lower right edge by the engine mount, is that a part of a VIN for the car it was in originally?
