Is a True 1968 z 302 a large Journal ?

Ok I have stumbled across 2 302s which I know are pretty rare and hard to find and the guy who I found them from is giving me one for free, I want to use just the block and build it to a 383, I know the 302 is a 327 block with a 283 crank but my question is, Is it a Large journal ?. Can I use this block to be a 383 ? thanks

by the way the codes were Block 3914678 and I could not find the heads true identity but the code is 3917298 thanks cya later

If it is a real one (which it is probably not) sell that stuff on ebay and get about 5,000 for it.

The 302 for 1967 was a small journal crank. They made only 602 of these units. The crank is identified by a wide V notch on the flywheel flange. The 68 and 69 302's used the large journal crank. cast #3941178 (Late) and 3279 (early), also ID'd by the V notch. If the notch is not there, it's not a 302 crank. The block casting you have was also used for the 67 large journal 327 and 350. I would look everything over good for the casting DATES as well as numbers, and find out just exactly what you have before you ruin good vintage parts for a 383. 350 blocks are a dime a dozen.

Like stated before they only made 602 of these, so the odds of you having one is about one in a billion. However if you got that lucky and the guy doesn't know what he has that is his problem.

You would definately have the only one on ebay so I think you would generate a lot of interest and the bidding would drive the price way up there.

If they are true 302 engines you need to speak with your parents about what to do I see your age as 15 in your profile.These are worth quite a bit of money to the right people, perhaps enough to put you well on your way to a college education.As stated before 350 blocks are a dime a dozen don't ruin a period correct extremely rare engine for a run of the mill 383.Friend of mine had one in a truck he bought and it was purchased by someone in La. for I think $4000.00 sight unseen, the gentleman even sent a semi after it. He didn't even care if it ran just that all the parts were there.

Before I would believe its a 302 and some fool is giving them away, I would want to see the suffix code. It is located on the front passengers deck on the block. Give us the code and we will tell you what you have.
