yea i know, to me it sounded as if you were being more nuetral but were saying that people shouldn't dismiss something so fast just because they think they are sure about something

the you in my previous post was just a general statement not aimed at anyone in paticular, it may have been better if i had used something more like they or so

No need to shout.

He was talking about telling the 283 from the 327 externally, I do believe.

Pre-1967 350 availibility.

I started getting seriously interested in Chevy engines about 1969 while a Freshmen in HS and read EVERYTHING I could get my hands on about Chevy engines and at no time did I see anything that said the 350 could be had before 1967. I have the October 1, 1966 copy of the Chevrolet Passenger Car parts manual and the Illustration and Special Information catalog that goes with it which include the '67 Camaro. I also have over 4 decades worth of Chevrolet related literature and in none of them ANYWHERE does it say anything about the 350 being available in anyway, shape or form prior to it's release in the '67 Camaro. Nor have I ever seen a LJ block of any kind with casting dates prior to 1967.

If GM spent the tooling money to change the journal sizes in the block, crank and rods you can be damn sure they would have been trying to sell the crap out of them from day one and with the Hoopla over the all NEW Camaro and the NEW 350 they sure weren't going to be selling their new flagship engine as a replacement before you could get one in a car. It just didn't work that way.

I don't know what book you read that in but it was WRONG. Don't feel bad though, some of my literature has bad info in it. You just have to know how to seperate the wheat from the chaff.

The 283 has it's own set of casting numbers separate from the 327.
The 327 shares casting numbers with both ther 302 and the 350 Chevy.
