Its got like a 2" damper. Ive got a snake camera, what should I look for on the piston?

Stanglover posted a picture of a Boss piston earlier in this thread.  See if your pistons look like that.  You might also be able to use the snake camera to look for the screw in studs if you don't want to pull off a valve cover.

Take a look down into the oil filler, or pull a valve cover. You should have screw in studs and guideplates. The guideplates should be visible. 


One true way to knock it out of the park is to get the partial VIN stamping off the back side of the block, below the driver side head. 70 and early 71 model year blocks had it below the passenger side head. You can send that VIN to Kevin Marti and he can tell you if it's a B351 VIN or not.
