depends on what year it is, if it's an earlier 327 than no, because it has small journals, a later 327 with large journals, might fit.

I think the motor is made in 1966.

A 66 motor would be a small journal. Limiting you to a 302 or 327. A 350 could be made but, the 350 crank, main journals, would have to be turned to small journal specs.

he's right

the engine is a small jornal 327. the 350 crank will not fit, but if you find a small journal 283 crank it will put out 302 cubic inches. it should fit with no troubles at all!

Problem will be finding pistons to match with that 327 block and 283 crank. 302 pistons are getting really scarce and when found are not cheap.

Having torn apart literally scores of small journal 327's I have yet to see one that DIDN'T have a forged crank. I have heard of cast cranks in small journal 327's but have never seen one. By 1 and 2 pc. are you referring to the rear main seal? All '55-'86 small blocks were 2 piece.

GM Performance parts makes an adapter that will allow you to use a crank designed for a one piece rear main seal in an earlier two piece rear main seal block.

eagles 9000 serie cranks for a basic 350 are $160.00,if you contact them and pre arrange it,i am quite certain for a few dollars more they will grind the rod journals down to 2".

'69 327 crank is a large (or medium size if you will) journal. You need to find a pre '68 crank.
