Chevy selling a patent for the 302 to Ford? Where did you get that info?
The basic dimensions of the Chevy 302 are a 283 crank in a 327 or 350 block. 3.0 inch stroke with a 4.0 inch bore. There were two different rod journal and mains journal sizes for this engine produced between 67 and 69. They have no similarities to a Ford 302 and are as much a small block Chevy as any other with all the same components interchangeable with other Chevy small blocks.
