Before i forget it will be a Toploader with a 9" running 3.5:1 gears.
What power band do you want? Whats your max rpm that you'll rev the engine to.
I'm sold on the 302 rods with the 351 crank, have a look at some old threads on this, it makes sense. Find a piston to suit the 6inch rod. Choose a piston that will give you the right compression ratio.
