no! you have to put the pistons in from the top

is it also a small journal crank {the one one ebay}? and yes you would have to get .010 set of main bearings, clevitte 77 have a good reputation when it comes to engine bearings

Boring has nothing to do with the crank...Did you bore your block for the new pistons?


What's wrong with your old crank?

Maybe .010 will fix it........................

Thats what I am asking for.....If you get your crank turned .010 , it will clean the rust up....You shouldn't have to buy a crank at all. Yours will be fine.

All Chevy pistons are aluminum.....either cast or forged. Yours are cast, which is fine. You can buy aftermarket forged pistons, but for a street engine, you shouldn't need them.

You usually buy new pistons when your cylinder walls are worn or badly scratched......and you usually bore your block a bit oversize to accomidate these. It cleans up the cylinders.
