Thought I better share,a little bit of horse trading and I ended up with this early 60's build 312 this weekend.std bore 312Ported and polished "G" headsdeep sump pan
Everything looks very unused,very tight timeing chain,clean bottom end other than mouse house causeing some discolouration on throws.Also mystery cam that's I have not pulled yet.
Finally feel like I have something of interest to share to group.

  Plan is to strip and clean it for now.I hopeing I can re-use most everything,although I was told it would only run on AV gas so that has me a bit worried.I have to pull it apart first and see what I have.I have been trying to purchace a real nice 57 tudor that would be a nice home for this.Or maybe my weldin truck...

Looks like hi comp pistons alright. Before you spend money on the block, clean it up well & check for cracks, especially in the mains area. Over tightening the main bolts on 312s led to disasters sometimes.. Good luck.

Nothing visual yet for cracks,pulled all but rear one.I`ll post another pic but everything is washing up fine except for the rust in the valley.No ridge and hone marks right to top.Measures 3.875(324 cubes).Rod throws all look nice so far but some staining on mains.

I had never heard of "Moon" Cams so I did some diggin and found this information from a website called "The H.A.M.B.
Some real history here about Moon Cams

"Dean Moon partnered up with Chuck Potvin to mfr front drive blower systems, and Chuck brought along his cam grinding operation. After Chuck (and Dean) died, Chico carried on the 'Moon Cams' service..."

In case you dont know "Dean Moon" is the Moon Eyes guy. He is responsable for quite a few aluminun intakes that Merc and Ford used and much more!

Potvin Cams reputation speaks for itself.

I would venture a guess that the 36 - 68 is the timing event.
