I've just about got the numbers matching 1964 389 torn down and I am making my list of imrovements and parts needed.
I did a search of cylinder head bolts and their markings. I ran across somewhere BearGFR was talking about letters and markings on the pan bolts and a few other areas.

I can't find in my search within this forum or on the internet the actual correct markings on the cylinder head bolts.
Much good info on stock vs ARP and longer than necessary bolts, etc. Great forum this place is.

Here is a picture of a sample of my headbolts. I have the circle on bolt head. I also have Rockford grade 8 markings.
Naturally I also have the stud on top of head bolt (not pictured).

Can someone chime in and tell me what is correct for head bolt markings? I want to keep this engine as original as I possibly can.

Thanks

Tom - Agree with BLK69JUDGE - below are the Head Bolt Markings on my '71 WK 400.

I think they used whatever was in the appropriate Type/Length Head Bolt Bin at the Engine Assembly Plant at the time.

I have the bolt on Oil Drippers - hence the 4 studs inside the Heads.

Left Bank Facing Engine – Front to back Outside Head
Concentric Circle (Same as the Bolt you have.)
1047 CP
Stud
TR (Have the 6 radial lines signifying Grade 8)

Left Bank Facing Engine – Front to back Inside Head
