"But how do it know?"
Hi All,hey whats up i have a 350 but has work on it a 383 kit on it the motor is on the truck right im going to take it
out on sunday so if u would like to heird it run before let me know
If one comes across a complete, running engine that is being advertised as a SBC 383 stroker, can the buyer check certain things to verify that the motor is indeed a 383 stroker without having to take apart the motor?
Assuming the buyer cannot remove the oil pan to check the crank for one of various reasons (engine still in the vehicle, hear before you buy, will not pull motor until buyer ready to pay, buyer has no idea what to look for), and the seller does not have any documentation or receipts for the build, what else can he or she do to make sure or get some sort of verification that the motor is indeed a 383?
It is understood that a 383 stroker has a higher compression than a 350. Is there a general range of compression in which a run-of-the-mill or a mild 350 operates, vs the compression range of a run-of-the-mill to mild 383 stroker?
For the sake of simplicity, when answering this question, it is safe to assume that the buyer has no idea what he or she is doing and that in the end, ending up with a healthy 350 isn't too much of a loss.
