327 and 400

I met a guy that mentioned trading his 400 for my 327, I've never herd this 400 run, He mentioned there was water in the oil so he was going to replace the head gasket. My 327 has a new intake, Edlebrock performer RPM and a Holley 670 street avenger on top of that. This 400 Has a Holley street dominator intake, and a holley 650 D/P but it looks pretty old. This 400 he says has big valves. Do you think this trade is worth it for me?

Tell him to replace the head gasket and you want to see the bores before he puts it back together. Tell him that and the carb is not part of the deal, you should keep yours. Keep in mind your 327 probably has a steel crank too...

Have that 400 magged between the steam holes and head bolt holes/bores. Very common places, also the heads between the steam holes and bolt holes.

I'm with BobCMan on this. Chances are he is trying to get a running replacement motor for one that most likley is not rebuildable. Sometimes water in oil is a simple fix in any block except the 400.

If by water in the oil he means antifreeze turn him down, that bottom end could be in bad shape. A good 327 for a questionable 400 is not a good trade in my opinion.
