This is the new engine and cylinder
heads. It's a Recon Engines
vintage from a C series truck.
4 bolt mains, 9.1 compression, .040 overbore, stock cam and
lifters (for now), high volume oil pump and double roller timing chain.
The heads I sourced from a local machine shop. They are 882 casting
number heads. 1.94, 1.50 valve, 3 angle valve job, ported and polished.

The engine is in and running great. At this point the only luxury I
could afford was a chrome air cleaner...
