Re: need help

www.mortec.com Use that to identify the block and heads. Use the block and head information in Google to get an idea of the donor vehicle and/or power rating.

Thousands of folks used to do it before you could get cheap stroker kits. If I remember correctly, The main journals need to be turned down .20, ( 2.45 vs 2.65) and you have to either use the shorter 400 rods or pistons with a different pin location. Nowadays it ain't worth it when a 383 stroker kit is one stop shopping.
