these are kinda hard to find as differ from the engines in the cars of this size, i've found their from the 361 block family,so far i've find parts from 440/383/361 work, finding push rods was the hardest part as there 10 1/4" long, but was able to find them thru summit racing out of ohio would found a warehouse in sparks ne that had a few on hand yet.
