69 blocks have a short deck height, probably have the wrong intake for the block.

I found out what could be a problem...

My deck height is 9.48, and a new 351 is 9.5
When the motor was built, they people who built it decked the hell out of it and chopped off .059" off of it... It looks like I have to have the intake machined down to fit the block and heads. Im going to take my old intake and new intake and see if they can match them.
