383 crank

I bought a 350 with a stroker kit and was told it just been rebuilt. It doesn't have a 383 crank. This is probably a silly question to those of you with experiance. Can you keep the crank in a 350 when you install the stroker kit or do you have to go with the 383 crank?

It's called a 'stroker' because the new crank has a longer stroke. If you didn't get a new crank, you got stroked yourself...

there are different way's of doing a stroker crank.most will have the crank welded the on the outside of the rod throw for a stroker and the inside for a destroked crank,then the crank is ground to the correct rod journal size.
another way is to just offset grind the throws but requires the use of a pre-1968 rod on a chevy,hints small journal.

The 383 is a 350, .030 over and a 400 crank with resized mains to fit the 350 block. Or an aftermarket crank with the 400 stroke. You can build them with the standard 350 rods or 6" rods with the correct pistons. They have the pin moved up further into the piston.

there are many ways to get cubic inches but you are correct if you want to line bore your block.
i'm not a big fan of the 383 i would rather have a 377 or a 406.to each there own
