394 ID help


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to ID a 394 engine that has the front cover & water pump consistent with 1963-4.

I don't have the appropriate literature covering those years.

The number on the head boss is 090774. There does not appear to be a prefix or suffix.

Any ideas?

Export engines came as 2 and 4 barrel.

Export: 8.3: 1 CR, .040 head gaskets and painted light green.

As far as I know, only the Dynamic could have the 8.75 CR 2-bbl engine. It was also painted light green.

High compression 394 10.25 CR were available as 2 barrel, again only in Dynamics.

I wondered about that. I have no '63/'64 factory materials, just '61/'62. I made that post at work and all I had for reference was my '68 Motor's manual. Maybe I shouldn't rely on it.
