It is weird. A guy finally came with a crane to pull the motor. I got to read the ID on the back of the block and it was 14010207. It showed to be a 80-85 pickup motor with 4bolt mains. The the oil pan has been off is known to be a 4 bolt engine. The heads are 882's also.

882 heads on oe 327? That dont sound right. They usally have older style heads.

Looks like its a truck 350 by the numbers. Date code does not match up problaly need to put some white on the numbers to see them better. I think 327 all start with 3 if im not mistaken.

Could have been a 2 bolt 305. Not bad to have a later 350 block. Should be a strong runner over older 327 without all the updates. Just little less cool factor.

Goes to show you can't believe everything your told. Another dead giveaway other than the casting number confirming it is the 327 never came with 4 bolt main caps. However someone could put a large journal 307 or 327 crank in a 350 4 bolt block and there you have it.

we pulled the heads and it has a 3.5in stroke. The date code was cleaned up and it was F not an E showing it to be a 94 pickup with tbi. When he got it had a 2 barrel carb. The engine was pretty freshly rebuild. Still had honing marks in the cylinders. Too bad it isn't a roller block.

The motor ran good, but the trans lost 1st and Reverse. and the rear end grenaded. While it is apart he wants to some extra power. It is a friend of mine. I have him talked into vortec heads, a summit 1103 or comp 268he cam to go with 3.73 posi. It was a 3 on the tree. He wants a 5 speed manual.

His goals are healthy idle, enough power to run with most modern cars, while still being comfy to drive for 40 miles should he want to take the wife out.

Thanks for the patience.

Crummy heads, great block, so what's next? Not what they told you but not a bad place to build from.
