400 sbc question
 
HI guys could some one tell me if a 400 sbc 2 bolt main is a small journal or large journal thanks for your time joe

All 400's had 2.65" main journals, 0.020" larger than the 350's. The rod journals are 2.100", same as the 350's.

The rear main cap is fairly thin and weak. It is safer to use an oil pump stud instead of a bolt. If you crack the cap your screwed.

Yeah, bracketeer is right. Put them studs everywhere you can on a block that old.
