Re: crank switch

Hate to tell you this buddy but chevy came out with a 3.62 stroke crank. It came out of the 3rd generation LS1 engine. And thats the one I'm curious about if I can put that into this 86 305.

Re: crank switch

well, you never mentioned it was an LS1, in that case its not even a 350, its a 360 or somthing stupid like that (3.98 bore 3.62 stroke). And it may fit with machine work, but an LS1 is made with metric dimensions, but im not sure if it would even be made to fit. youll have to break out the micrometer and do some measurements.

Re: crank switch

This is really starting to drive me nuts, all I want is a torque strong engine, is that to much to ask for?

Re: crank switch

What about the ever popular 400 crank, in a 305 block should give you a 334 or so. even though its not as good as a 383 , but it would work pretty good.

Re: crank switch

Would that actually work? I never thought about that. But that would mean that I would have to get a 2 peice rear seal to one peice rear seal conversion. And I don't know if they work all that great. I haven't heard to much on them.

Re: crank switch

I'm sure there is. Try looking at the bigger v-6 engines. I'm not up to speed on V-6's as much as I am on v-8's. I think that chevy made a 3.8 or a 4.3 v-6 you could check into that.
