yes if you go on to rockauto.com and put in your info this is what i like abought that sight then click on timing gear/chain it will show you several that they have that will fit and a cross reference comes up with part numbers also i think 351 clevland 400 m truck will also work its on there and it also cross references with a 56 pontiac as well and the best thing they actualy have pics that go with the part number

Very cool Thank you.Do you have a part number for the pistons.I just heard back from Wally at Badger and he says they don't have a mold that he is aware of but he will check,and if I had anymore additional info that may help.

I'm sorry. I was just answering his question about the flat piston heads, and attached the link talking about it. I've removed the link from my post.
