Looking for info on this 429
Hey, I'm new to the site and am looking for some information on a pretty nice 429 I just bought. Im and FE guy and don't have a whole lot of knowledge on the 429/460s. Anyways, the engine looks to be a 429 PI top end with a CJ or SCJ lower end. The heads are D20E with factory screw in studs, guide plates, and aluminum valve covers. The Intake is D1AE for a spread bore carb. The lower end of the engine looks to be CJ or SCJ. It has the DOVE-A 4 bolt main block, Rods are C9AE (or OE) with forged pistons. It has the dual entry oil pump with the baffled CJ pan. I've only pulled the oil pan and valve covers, so I haven't really gotten to far into it as far as number go. It has a D0OE water pump and D0OE 2 groove water pump pulley. The damper is there and so is the pulley, but i haven't gotten the numbers of them yet. The distributor is only single point. The exhaust manifolds are there and have D2OE numbers. I got the engine at a good price with the intent of turning it over to make a buck (for more FE stuff). My question is, would I be better off rebuilding the engine as it is or parting it out? What would some of these parts bring individually? Supposedly, the engine was built as a race engine back in the day for a class were you had use all factory produced parts. The engine is complete except for the alternator, fuel pump, and power steering pump. Are CJ parts like pulleys and brackets worth anything? Also, how can I tell if the crank is CJ? What other CJ specific parts should I look out for on the engine? I picked up a 1968 429 for the guy at the same time. The part numbers on the heads are C8VE and the intake is C8SE. Are any parts from this engine desirable? Thanks!
