if anyone is still reading, info is info

Short and sweet . You will blow that succor. At 3.75 stroke verse rod length is the magic. The connecting rod bolts break. Even if I doesn't happen right then, there is something called crack propagation. once it starts it's just a matter of when. The 3.48 is long for a sbc to some extent. Its not the stroke or rod length that is singly importent. It's a ratio called rod to stroke. R/S -Your engine can't breathe at 2.00 r/s, at 1.75 it's slow or blow. I will always take sbc at 327.The last one I read, this is a peak at the reason. It's no opion 428 ho. Putting together engines is more complicated than this, but you got that right. Let's go racing. mark
