Reply to "Mangusta 8MA1088 - What are the casting numbers of the original block and heads"

Today I visited the friend's garage mangusta engine was stored. The attached is the pics of parts. Surprisingly all parts except block are made in 1968. The crankshaft, though I cannot find out the cast date, has 2M that means maybe for 302 engine.

 Is there a little probability that this engine has been built with these parts initially? Anyway my friend decided to build up the engine using almost all parts. He thought that cylinder head must be replaced due to lots of corrosion. It will occur the water leak.

 We will look for the cylinder head that can fit to this block. Is there any attention before purchase? I should confirm the 4v mark on top.
