    Default 396 short block

    I have a 961 casting 396 2 bolt block it has a steel crank thats .010 .010 and it has been bored .030 small dome cast pistons. I bought it to use the heads on my 454 and upon taking them off this engine looks recently rebuilt can see the cross hatch in the cylinders. Can be a good runner with a re ring kit comes with balancer and short style crank pulley. I am 20 min south of Fresno $350obo for short block text for pics 5597907580

    Do you have a picture of the front and rear complete numbers? Curious if it might be period-correct for one of my musclecars.

    If not pictures, what is the full number on back, casting date (next to it) and the numbers/letters off of the front by the water pump?

    It also has a cast iron Q jet intake manifold the date code on it was H87 and the heads were date 1967 as well i was intending on keeping the heads but ill know for sure tomorrow waiting for a call back on some 088 rec ports.
