I am in the process of having my 283 engine rebuilt with the date of 29 Sept 1960. I have a pair of heads F-28-0 & G-18-0 that i want to use, Would these be acceptable dates that i could use and if not what would be the correct time frame for the heads that i need. Thanks

Nobody will ever know the head dates or casting numbers - they aren't judged; they only look at the casting symbols on the end of the heads to identify them. In any event, the six-month "window" for the block casting date runs back from the car's final assembly date, not from the stamp pad date when the engine was built.
