Thats a good question and I honestly dont know the answer, only know the ones I've had or had problems with, the 350/400 screw up I experienced and I cracked a few 454 Flex Plates in my old 70 Chevelle SS
I do know those Tall Deck Truck & Bus Motors were pretty cool, I actually bought a big ***** GMC delivery truck @ 35 yrs ago and tried to fist put the BB in my Box Nova (screwed that up ). Then I put it in my 70 SS Camaro and it gave me many miles of tire shredding enjoyment.

Question for you Prostreet?
What about the 366 and 427 tall deck blocks. Same internally balanced like a 396 or 427 short deck or externally balanced.

I made that mistake once and it wasnt pretty. I took out a normal internally Balanced 350 and installed what I thought was just a different year Junk Yard Motor. SOB turned out to be a 400 externally balanced motor and I used the original Flywheel and HOLY VIBRATION BATMAN IS ALL I CAN SAY
(what could I say it was 30+ years ago and I was young and foolish )
283-427 uses the same flex plate, (except 400)motors are Internally Balanced
454 uses a unique Flex Plate (except Gen V & VI) motor is Externally Balanced

|BOBCRMAN@aol.com||It will bolt on but it won't work. 454 needs weighted flywheel/flexplate|
