If i use a 283 crank in a 327 will it work??

My 327 i put cam, lifters ,intake, headers, different heads. But when i got it running the rings were stuck, and it knocked was a good motor, but sat a long time. Can you use a 283 crank 3 inch stroke, and stock 327 rods. 327 has a 3.25 inch stroke. Would dome pistons work,to help compression, with shorter stroke just a thought.Putting new crank kit and rings this week. THANKS.. Wormy

You can use the 283 crank in the 327 block if its a small journal. The 283 or 327 rods are the same. You will have to use .125 oversize 283 pistons, not the 327 ones, because of the difference in placement of the piston pin to crown dimention. If you use the 327 pistons, the top of the piston will come up out of the bore and introduce themselves to the valves. You will be happier, I think, to freshen up the 327-not to mention the money saved.

The pistons will not come out- they'll sit approx 1/4" below deck at top dead center. Where do people keep getting these 283 cranks? I want one!

Mr. Wormy--Sorry, I wasn't trying to mislead you with my post--I obviously didn't have my thinking cap on yet that AM. It's nice to know that a guy can make a DUMB mistake like that and not get totally reamed out

Does anyone still make 302 pistons (as far as I know 327 block, 283 crank, 5.7" rods)?

4" bore blocks are easy, but can't find a listing for 3" large journal cranks or matching pistons. 350 or 383, no 302.

Call em. Just becuase they don't list it in a mag don't mean they don't have em. They still make 'em no doubt. They just don't waste mag. space.
