327 Rookie...

i was just reading this post, and wanted to ask for some advice.

i have a 55 Bel air (210 with bel air trim, etc)

We just pulled the engine. Its a 327. GM 3903352.

The car has been sitting for years... like 6 or 7 years. Something was fubar in there. So i didnt have the time or $$$ to work on it.

While pulling the motor, the Flexplate almost fell off and hit me! So i really think that was the horibble sound i heard and why i stop driving it.

Now with the Engine out, im wondering what to do. im about to pull the intake off, then maybe the heads. theres some minor rust around the rockers.

Do i need to get the Heads/Block check..cleaned worked on?

I think these are the specs im not 100% sure

327 67-68 Bore 4.001 or 4.000? / Stroke 3.250 / Main (crank shaft right?) 2.450 / Rod Jourla 2.100 / Actual 326.700 / Liters 5.350 / 2 bolt

(most of that is chinese to me! sorry Computers are my thing)

I dont have a ton of $$$ to put into it. Maybe sell this and buy a crate engine? Or maybe this doesnt need much work at all since the main issue was the Flexplate from the sound of it all... when the engine was running bad.

Definately clean cylinders very good. I use Hot soapy water and scrub well with rag then dry and wipe with 10wt oil on paper towel until no grey color.

Hopefully this guy figured it out after 6 years.
Who knows really? Sometimes things take a while.
