They would machine the crank from a 292 to fit into a 250 block and do custom rods and pistons to build a stroker. Rumor has it there's a book somewhere by a guy named John thawley with all the details. as for the motor, I guess I'm building a 250. Thanks for the input.
Cool. I thought the low deck 292 was supposed to be a factory deal. Have you looked up the suffix from this block?

Might want to cc the head, if it's 61cc like I see listed that'll put the cr up there pretty good on a 250.
