Dove has done FE heads for some time. So has Edelbrock.

As for telling and FE type from the outside, as noted, very hard. Casting numbers and date codes and the combination of components can be an indicator, but to be sure you really have to tear it down.

Link notes a "410" not a 390, but again hard to tell. Would need more info on casting/date codes. As the pistons and cam were changes all bets are off as once you start changing that much its a rebuild and morphed into a "restomod engine". So as the FE blocks were somewhat interchangeable the original code becomes somewhat moot in most cases...

Had a long chat with Bill Williamson from Ron Davis Radiators today!

Brilliant!. Taught me heaps and has left me feeling very confident with the final solution. Highly recommend him if you have cooling issues. Once I decide on the final solution for the Big Block I'll post it. Thanks Steve for the Ron Davis mention.......

The more I see the more appealing the 50s F100 are.... Nassi has good taste.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

So had a chat with an auto specialist. He poo pooed the idea of a radiator with a trans cooler built-in for Brisbane. As I've already got a cooler in place he suggested very strongly that I should keep and not integrate it.

Thoughts?
