Being Honest here. None of the parts you mentioned were even in this engine i got in the boat. parts are as follow that were in it.. The crank was a 427 GM casting number that was turned 30 over on both journals . a buddy used it as a core for his crank he bought so i got 200.00 for it.. The heads needed larger helicoils since some were already heli-coiled and were stripped out. i ended up getting rid of the heads and had another set rebuilt. then found the bottom end in Stock condition and there was no way i was going to use the bottom end that came in it so.. Yeah someone lied to you guys about the motor you put in that boat i bought. otherwise i would be out enjoying it right now . i took a big loss on it .. BTW the heads were not even 990's ... they were a Closed Chamber rec port. this engine with the combo it had was atleast a 12to1 comp. and hypertectic cast pistons.. like i said someone Threw an engine together . was very bummed when i tore it down and seen all the junk inside it :(

not only were none of the parts in the engine. but #7 Cylinder we just noticed Yesterday has a Crack in it. i ran this for maybe 5 minutes and had water leaking into oil soon as i drove it before heading back and putting back on trailer. so this was why i was getting water in the oil. The hits keep coming :(. was going to list it for sell . so much for that :( .
