    RF can mean '57 283 truck or '62-'64 FI 327. In conjunction with the casting number, I would have to concur with the others, it looks like you may have a "fuelie".

    If it's tapered LESS than .008", ball hone it and fit it with a set of Grant rings. (cast iron)

    ...and don't forget the valve guides...

    Seriously, try some of the corvette forums. You will probably start getting offers PDQ.

    If they are original to the block, they will probably be #461's or 461X's.

    Yup, I was just gonna say the same thing. So when you say you "got it figured out" whats the story? Alot of us want to know how this is gonna end. Was it re-stamped? Whats the story?

    DUHHHHHHH....I knew that date sounded "not right". How about assembled Oct '63? Sorry for the dumb info. Just for grins, what's the casting date on block above bellhousing flange? DD
