Ok I have a 460 d1ve block .030 over with two bad pistons. Fresh D3ve a2a heads ported with cobra jet size valves, modified with screw in studs and guide plates running roller rockers. Also has luntai 564 lift cam. Also have 1970 429 all stock long block, with flat top pistons and d0ve heads. I'm trying to put a engine together on the cheap just so I can get the boat in the water. Here are the options I have come up with but have questions about them or if they will work, also open to suggestions.
Option 1-put d3ve heads on 429 short block. I wasn't sure if the stock 429 piston valve reliefs will clear the bigger intake valves, Also would like to know what compression ratio would be with this combo.
Option 2-Will the stock 429 rockers have enough room to take the lunati cam with out binding.
Also the 460 balncer has a pulley riveted to the front of it to drive the alternator belt. Can I use this balancer on the 429. Thanks guys for the help.
