327 block with a 350 crank

i have a 327 block with a 350 crank that came out of my new project car. i started reassembly last night, but was stopped cold when my counterweight journals were crashing into my pistons....they were stock 327 pistons and i didn't keep the old ones that were in the engine. does anyone know what kind of pistons that i need? crank - 3932442 3.48" stroke block - 3932386

You have to match the pistons to the crank. The location of the wrist pin will be different to make up for the difference in the stroke.

You made it into a 350 and it needs 350 related pistons.

350 pistons is all you need, that crank casting number was used for 305 and 350 cubic inch engines, both were balanced differently but most engine rebuilders mix them up all the time-makes for a nice vibration at about 2500 rpm.

Or you could use a 307 crank & make a 327 out of it.
