Wow..thanks for all the response. Does anyone have good recomendations for getting my head machined and what do I really need to do to the lower end? Can I do the work with the motor still in the truck besides pulling the head and such? Ayone recomend a good rebuild kit? Also I have never gotten that far into a rebuild..would someone that is experienced like to help out. I currenlty am running a jim c carb dizzy and desmog kit with maf ceramic headers. Like the 2f and would just like to keep this thing on the road. I guess I just don't know everything about what I should and should not have to replace. Thanks for all the help.

Still looking for info. I think I will be using my own engine for the rebuild but what do I need to buy new and what do I need to have machined in my lower end if I get the top end all cleaned up and machined?

At a minimum new bearings, rings, and gaskets. Pistons if you need to have the cylinders bored over. I would have your existing cam and lifters reground by delta. There are some good tricks for the head, using chevy valves and springs. PM me your email address, I have a spreadsheet with some info and links which are 2FE specific but a lot of the info applies to a general rebuild.
