clevite berings makes a spacer bering for a smllblock chevy so you don't have to use the bering spacers normally used when a 350 or 327 crank is used in a 400 block, what I need to know is where I can get them or the address of clevite or tel number. I could also use the part number.I seen these things advertised a shot time ago but cant remember where I do know that the cost is $ 83+change for the set and that the rear bering still needs a spacer

Tom, Sealed Power/Speed Pro makes the bearing your looking for, part # 4981M10 puts a large journal 350/327 crank turned .010 under into a 400 SBC block. Works awesume.

thanks I will try them.This is my dream engine and have been planning it for about 20 years and have been gathering parts, I so far have the crank, a 68 factory supercrank forged radiused that came in a chevyII radio delete 4 bolt main 325 hp it still is at std bering size and perfect.the heads 68 #291 202/160 fulies yes I know there are better but these are the ones I want.the block is a 71 400 4bolt truck with absolutly no cracks and good std bore,will bore 020 with deckplates and hardblock to streetable level add the stud kit and windage tray.the rods are eagle sir at 6 inch, other parts, cloyes hidollar time set, melling pump, chevy brown springs,350 hp 327 corvette intake.the parts I'm waiting for are BRC custom flattops and camshaft,leaning toward a solid lifter unit with lift about 485 and duration at 290(a little race gas maybe?)I would really like to top it off with a quad webber IDA side draft system but for now a holley will do
