Build a 327 on a 350 block?

i just traded into a 69 327 engine that had been re worked. when i took the heads off (305's) i found it had been bored 0.40 and is worn.
i don't have a micrometer but there are waves near the top. i believe it is a large journal
what i want to know is can i swap the crank,rods and pistons (dome 10.3 to1)
into a good 350 block with out changing deck height ? or would it be better to rebore the block i have ? i have a fresh set of 69 2.02 64cc heads &
Q jet. any info, suggestons ? also what cam recomendations? it's going in a 74 nova with a Th350. w/3.73 10 bolt. i won't be racing it, but i want a clean running combo for highway speeds with decent mileage. i kinda wanna keep the block i have, (a nostolga thing) but don't know about boring more?

If it is a large journal crank, it should be a drop in. Now, the cost feasibilty would depend on what you could get a clean std. bore 350 block for.

I would not recommend reusing worn .040 pistons, of course, the cylinders could be sized specifically for the piston clearance. The additional machine shop expense might almost offset the price of new decent pistons.

Thank you for the info.
had i looked a little more i see lots of post's about this.
i should have ask here before i swaped a running 350 and a AOD for what turns out to be a 327 crank,and 305 heads.
i'll be looking for a good 350 block and start there.
if i have to bore and buy new pistons i may as well build a 4 bolt.
also, will i need the short block assembly balanced?

If you are going to use the same rotating assembly, i.e. crank, rods and pistons you'll be ok. If you change anything I'd rebalance.

Cut your losses, sell all the parts and buy a new Mr. Goodwrench and drive it like you stole it.
