I was thinking the same thing. You are already making quick progress, Eric! How is your short bed truck?


 Thanks Brett! I put the SWB in storage with the Chevelle.

Motor is all apart except the pistons rods crank

nice block with excellent bores

 

Has rebuilder pistons with a block that has not been decked.

Pistons are .042 in the hole. Yuck!

The rod and main bearings will need to be replaced.

The crank looks like it would be fine with a polish. I will need to have Darryl take a look at it.

Not sure what to do about the pistons so far down? Any ideas?

I wish.

I thought about ordering a VortecPro 496. for a little over 7k I could have 650hp.

Don't want to drop that kind of coin till the whole truck is sorted out.

You order it and I'll deliver it, Mark's shop is about 20 min from me.

I am considering ordering a new crank (2 pc seal) for my 1 pc rotation assy. and rebalance it and use that in the truck block which is 2 pc with my Eddelbrock heads?

$250 for scat 9000 crank and $150 to balance.

What do you think of that logic?

 

then I would have a solid motor with Mahle forged pistons and 6 inch rods.

I also have an edelbrock rpm manifold sitting on the shelf and a Holley carb. Should make 425 hp?

Would your comp. be where you want with those pistons and heads? Maybe have to mill the heads down?

 It would put me at 10.25 CR which should work well

just some 327 admin notes

327s always had the issue with pistons bring DITH
327s never had a 4-bolt main block so whatever you have there, FRANKEN-MOUSE appears to be a home brew build out of parts at hand
Head casting number? 305HO heads?
If so, that would help with the CR but not the quench. Deck the block and/or shim head gaskets

 It's a 010 1968 - 69 302/350 block

307 crank (same stroke as 327)

heads are in good shape but are off of 307 and small valve my guess is 76 cc chamber

They did in fact make a 4-bolt main 327. They were the large journal steel crank versions in 1 1/2 ton trucks.

 hmmmm, hmmmmmm
interesting.......never heard of this, definitely no 4-bolt 327 in a car


1 1/2 ton truck, 6nly? 68-69?  tell me more, common as an honest politician?

wow! I mis-read the head castings too. lo-po heads for 2-bbl engines. If May '68 or there about, let me know.

It's the same casting as the 350 block just uses a 327 large journal steel crank. No big value/

George, correct, no 4 bolts in cars or regular size pickups. Go find yourself a old farm flatbed grain truck with racks with a 327 from about 68-69 and you'll find a large journal 327 4 bolt, steel crank, with "O" rods.

I took the block down to the machine shop to have it checked out before I order parts and it was cracked.

No good.

The only piece on the engine I thought was savable.

 

I need a good gen 1 small block that will clean up at 4.030

must be 4 bolt

can be either 1 pc or 2 pc rear seal

It is alive!

I purchased a crate 350 from Bowtie Performance for $1200 + core of $150

Truck runs well. Drives pretty good.

I haven't driven it too far and haven't gone above 35 mph yet.

More pics to follow.
