O.K., so it's a small journal 327 block and obviously has a small journal 3" stroke crank; it really does'nt matter it's origin. What I really want to know is what are those "740P" pistons. Any partsmen/machinist have any idea? I'd heard at one time Ford 352 pistons could be used if the wrist pin bore on the Chevrolet rods were opened up to the Ford size and the rotating assembly rebalanced. Any truth there? It would seem if all this is true, then using small chamber heads to get some compression back would make for a fairly cheap 301/302 build. Add a cam, 180 degree intake, and a heavy flywheel and instant back-to-the-60's. Seems everyone wants a 301/302. Anyone? BUTCH.
