Default Identifying possible Maskin engine.

If this is in the wrong section, then feel free to move it, and I apologize for not putting it in the right place the first time.

We recently picked up an engine, namely a 358 SBP.
It is marked JEG 020, and is believed to be one of the JEG engines they used under the 2000 - 2001 Pro Truck series, and believed to be prepared by Richard Maskin.

Does anyone on here have any information regarding this?
The reason I'm wondering is due to someone having switched the camshaft in between assembly and the time we got to it, and it's currently not running right, so we're trying to get a hold of a build sheet to said engine.
But as noted before, it's hard when we've only got a hunch of who assembled it.

The heads are mostly identical to the Dart Little Chief heads. Here's a few pictures, will be able to take a few more if needed.

That is one of our engines, but it hasn't been here in 10 years. During that time it has probably been apart numerous times and we have no way of knowing what has been replaced or modified.

The cam core for a Little Chief motor is obviously very different than for a typical SBC. You would have to have it taken apart and inspected by someone who is familiar with Little Chief set ups to determine what is wrong.

Sorry I can't give you a more specific response, but too many unknowns here.

Now that's a bad little boy right there!!!! you could ask the guys at Patterson Engines for some help, just a thought and not ment to redirct off this site... Only other option is take it to Dart and let them decipher it for ya. Good luck with this, it's a screamer of an engine if it was in a P/S Truck.
