Compatible?

Recently I discovered my 327 sbc engine was damaged. So I am in the market for a new block. I came across a 350 that is from a 1986 chevy truck that I am interested in buying. Will my intake, distributor, headers, water pump, etc from my 327 be compatible with a small block from 86? This is for my 65 impala. Thanks

Compatible... yeah they'll work. But they may not necessarily fit in the same place. Most likely, if you're using stock heads, it'll be drilled properly. If not it's a simple matter of ordering some brackets/belts.

This is one of the greatest things about Chevy.

1986 is the first year for the one piece rear main seal. You will need to use the 1986 Flexplate or Flywheel, as the 65 piece will not bolt on.

Everything else will bolt on.

Check for which type of camshaft you have(flat tappet or roller), the 86 block is usually machined for both, which givesw you a great opportunity to gain really usable power and torque by switching to a roller if not so already equipped.

Whats the casting number of the heads on the 327? 86 truck heads probably have 1.94-1.50 valves, If your 65 heads are in good shape, you may want to swap those to the 350. Depends on whether you want to keep the origianl look under the hood.
