so breakin it down barney style i can use the 283 with same crank just bore it out to 4.00 yeah302/Z28 said:Domed pistons have nothing to do with cubic inch.
283cid 3-7/8" bore 3" stroke
327cid 4" bore 3.25" stroke
350cid 4" bore 3.5" stroke
Bore a 283 out to 4" and you have a 301 (302)
or use an early small journal 327 4" bore block with the 283 crank and you also have a 301(302)
In 68 Chevy made a specific large journal crank in 3" stroke for the Z/28 302cid engine. This crank carried over to 69 and was dropped in 70 for a 350cid Z28.
An original undamaged 302 crank will bring a small fortune at a swap meet, or on Ebay.

Thats not the 301 we are talking about heredubie said:301 is a Pontiac engine most commonly found in early 80's Trans Ams. I transplanted one into my 80 Grand Prix and stuck a Turbo on it. It would go like stink but a plain ol 350 has more jam to it Stock 301 puts out 210 HP
rats i dont have enough for all 9BoomerADF said:But you will need 9
My dad ran a 301 in his '56 in the 60's. Never had any problem with it, but he also said he ofcourse was always working on it....then again things where cheaper and simpler then.
