And the exhaust port. As you can see by the gasket there is alot to be removed for a better flow.

 And want to say thanks to Jetaholic for running all this down for me And of course 429heads cause we will be doing these heads and drinking some beers >:D

2sav, like I said before, I would absolutley tear it down and go through it......   396 block???   wtf??  Is that a shorter stroke or a smaller bore?  The guy I got it off told me 468"....   I found another set of rods that I'll bring out to you next time I come out, but they are 6.135 (i think std 454)  I'm glad you pulled it apart and are going to take the time to build it right.  The boat will take way more time than the motor will..........   Also, on the performance boat site, there's a guy selling a brand new set of ARP main studs for 60 bucks,  that would be a good deal for that block.....

All factory BBC's use rods that are 6.135" long. The 396 has it's own stroke and bore. The 402 uses a 396 crank with it's own bore. The 427 is basically a 396 crank with a 454 bore.

Steve, let me know if I can help with anything.  I'm sorry that thing didn't turn out to be a 468, and if you wanted to go a diff direction I would understand and give you your money back.  I guess I will be checking numbers from now on!!!!!!!!!   I just saw a BBC 4 bolt and had no reason to think otherwise.  Let me know on the rods and they're yours if you want em.   Jason

sweet...ya know forged pistons fit w/ over twice the clearence as cast pistons. Thats why it's important to warm your enigine up properly before dropping the hammer, they swell up a little when warmed. Damn, if you would have ccalled when in town i could have given you my old calipers I got two new sets today. Any idea what the bore is yet?

Im just messing with you guy's thats not even my engine, i found it on a search >:D I pulled the pistons out today and they looked good i think with a hone and new rings i will be good to go on that end.  Next time im in Vegas i will give you a buzz , which might be next month again. Check out this crank its 010 but it sure is purdy ;)

If it's 0 decked you could always check out the stroke with a dial caliper

  :o Dammm, sorry to hear the bad news, again  :( .  I dont know much about Chevys, but if the 396 crank and rods are still good cant you use them in the 454 block to make a 427 ? 
Welcome to the club of broken boats :o  Pay here$ bend over and move along.

Man Steve, sounds like that thing is turning out to be a nightmare...........   The offer still stands to return your money, I had no idea that think was as big a basket case as it sounds..   If not, I'll at least pay to have that block punched out to the right size...........   Jason

You can do it, but the bob weight between a 396 crank and a true 427 crank are different. The pistons will weight more on a 427, so the balancer may have to add some metal to the crank.
