Thought on the following cast numbers, chevy v8

4672.......327.......forged..medium journal...3.25" stroke

thats the crankshaft out of it. I'm taking it medium journal is good since I can't find a large journal 327 crank


Is the block itself. It is a 2bolt main.

I'm pretty sure this engine has never been rebuilt. I will be posting some pictures later to see if any of you think it is possible to reuse the pistons. There is no visible scarring or pitting in the cylinders and the tops of the pistons look well except for a bit of charring.

If your 327 is a 68, then it should be a large journal block. There were 3 journal sizes on older small blocks, the early small journal 265s, 283s and 327 and some 302s , then there were the "medium journal" 302s, 327s and 350s , the only true "large journal small block is the 400.
I think the term "medium journal" is misleading because basically you either have the early small journal stuff or the large journal stuff with the 400 being an animal all it's own.
