Will I have any issues? 327 SBC

I have a 327 sbc in my Impala. As you can see in the picture, there is some damage. The piston took most of the damage and I am going to replace it. If I install a brand new piston and rings, will I have any issues with the amount of damage in the picture or no? Thanks

Looks pretty bad to me. If this is the '65 Impala convertable it needs to be NICE. I love those old cars.

Kind of hard to see but I would think the fire ring on a head gasket wouldnt seal.Deck it.

It looks like the whole piston bore is hammered, at least that's what my old eyes see. If it is, a new piston is a waste of money. That hole needs to be sleeved.

I have had a couple people look at it and say that its ok but I just wanted to double check. It is the original engine for the car.

Maybe I don't really understand your question. A machine shop can fix it, but it's going to take more than just a hone and rings. I think you'll probably need to sleeve it. Good luck, Bill.

I concur, there's no way in the world you could run that cylinder without boring and honing IF you also did the other 7, can't run different size pistons due to a balance problem. I would think...as earlier said the easiest and cheapest way is to sleeve it. Also all the schrapnel from the piston and cylinder is probably all through your oil passages and bearings, time to tear the whole sheeeebang apart for a good hot tank and jet clean.

You would have major issues, don't even think about it.

Will I have any issues? 327 SBC

It will not do any good just replacing the piston and rings. The block has too much damage. If you did do it that way chances are the top ring would hit the damaged area and break. Also I doubt whether you would have any compression on that cylinder. The head gasket might not also seal around the edge of the chamber. If not many miles on the engine just have that cylinder sleeved and install new piston and rings. vinniekg2 was referring to taking measurements to see how much the cylinder would have to be bored to clean up the damage.

You are going to have to bore, hone, and sleeve it. Maybe even deck the block. Then bore and hone all the rest of the cylinders to match. By the time you get done with that I bet you can find a used block much cheaper on Craigs List. Unless you have to have the original block with the car.
