    look at the references.

    U will see a 250 as a lill tq monster (well, not like the 240/300, I should have used the 300/4.9 efi in my bronk) the 200/250 heads often swapped as not much different, no + or - in performance - MPGs or HP/Tq) while the 200 a revie lill devil.

    LOTS of detail in those 2 sources (machining, ID-which U need, hop up, parts, a staged approach to ur ownership or build up & more) the latter - how to keep on rd while saving and moding toward ur needs.

    Or skip & reinvent the wheel (esp on LOM-SCV feed-back system).
    Good Luck, read then ask "the right Qs" if interested. We're here to help~

    some times folks dont know what they are selling (have). Make sure YOU DO...
    Only 4 or 5 points to assure, know them (ID indicators).

    casting numbers show ~ age, a good thing to no, not model (itsa ford, not cheb).
    For exact ⊝ born date ⊝ look between the castings that look like the
    red here (2 cast-in screw heads). I'm not sure how to do so myself, can "geta guy". After 50 yrs
    heads'n block can B swapped, of course, Y I recommend a check.
    Have fun, B safe AND productive !
