chevy 302?

i am almost done with the blower motor and egtting ready to move on to the camaro. i remember the z-28s had 302's and i think that would suit my purpose well and if it don't like that body i can put it in the mgb., anyway i guess i need too start gathering parts and i wanna make sure about availability. i am thinking early 327 block, 283 crank, i don't know what lenght rods but will go aftermarket cause this motor should love to rev. what about pistons? and rod lenght.

you'll need 302 chevy pistons to get the correct pin height and use stock length 5.700"small journal rods to fit it all together.I'd recomend balancing everything from the harmonic balancer to the flywheel and clutch assy. then you don't need be worried to rev it to 8500 rpm. 302's love to scream

hey thanks for replying, i wouldn't think of putting a motor together without getting the rotating assy spin balanced. on the pistons are the readily available? also are there spacers available to put a 283 crank in a 350 block kind of like the ones you use to put a 350 crank in a 400?

If you try this, you better have invested in quality valve train parts, or you will have an explosion on your hands when the valve train starts eating itself and dropping valve heads.
