I don't know how hard it is to find a hood, but if you have a 351 already I'd say that looks like a great project for you and your boy. He'd learn things you won't other find ways to teach him while you put it back together.

Then when you're worm food in a few years you won't have to worry about him. He'll be able to fix his own cars because you raised him right!

When I got my 62, it would turn to a given point and stop, but it would also go backwards to the same point and stop again. Put a bunch of Marvel Mystery oil in the cylinders and it freed up after a couple of days.

A broken or jammed timing chain could give you your condition too.
