Can you get some pics of non damaged pistons? Looks like it may have standard dove/cj style pistons in it.

Good eyes Lance, these Pistons weren't made for these heads, valve relief Is wrong. Sad

I have seen that same thing before! Had a friend buy a complete 514 with a-460 head years ago with the same problem. Luckily the thing spun a bearing before it killed the valves. Man I hope you can salvage this deal.

Did the guy you got the engine from actually have any BBF knowledge if so how could you not catch that mistake?

Mark, after being blocked after making the trade of the running BBC for this supposedly ready to run BBF, sent him these pics and he said he must have gotten ripped off as it was built by some engine builder in West TN(he couldn’t remember the name) and that he was as shocked as me that it wasn’t ready to run when I got it. Of course nothing was what it was said. Supposedly 565 cubes but it’s 521, carb wasn’t pro system as Patrick has never touched it. In my hurry to get it running for my 17 year old I was stupid to not check this myself and now it’s cost me a lot more than if I had checked it and took my time!

Me either Mark, not if it was something i knew was wrong. If it was something not known i could understand, but someone had to know something, it cant be as wrong as it was without someone knowing it. Oh well, nothing i can do about it now, just have to move on and figure out my next move, will be a while before i have thousands to try and fix it.
