Since your a young guy learning this field, then I shouldn`t have went so hard on you, I apologize. As for my avator, I have it there as I always loved the factory air cleaner decals, when you build a updated engine as I have you can still place the decal on there for the nostalgia look and thats what I shoot for. My favorite small block is a 327, why? I like how they perform. But, it`s not the old small journal and later medium journal factory 327`s that interest me. It`s this combo: A Vortec 350 block with factory roller cam, a 307 crank (same stroke as a 327) a 1 to 2 piece seal adapter kit, 5.940 lenth PM rods out of a "Baby" LT1 265 CU V8 produced in 94 and 95, Vortec heads, A comp hydraulic roller cam, Edelbrock performer Vortec intake, headers and a Vortec timing set from Cloyes. Have the block decked .010, and use pistons for a 383 chevy, the reduced deck height of the pistons with the longer rods make it match up close to zero deck. I`ve built many 350`s and I like them as well, they are very strong performing engines and super cheap to build. The topper of small blocks is the 400, you build one of them and you notice right away you stepped up in the world and your introduced to something called TORQUE. Only problem is, 400`s are scarce.
Listen to what K-Star has said, he`s given lots of good advice.
And speaking of Which K, We all started out building engines on the ultimate cheap, I did all the same things you did, and nope, none of them came unglued but we broke many a piston.

thats crazy man, I believe you about it bein a DOG, but its just almost unbelievable that it would be that bad. I had the 283 sbc thats in my truck built at muscle motors in booneville, IN. Actually my uncle had them built it, then i bought the truck from him but anyway, that little motor is far from a sluff, its in a 1980 chevy C30 4door duelly. Its got a SM465 3 speed w/ granny low and it will Roast the rear tires on that truck, not in granny low, but in 1st, and chirp the heck out of them on 2nd. i can't remember what all they did to the motor but it def huals that big a** truck around pretty good.
