Not a stroked 305, but rather a destroked 400. Large Journal 327 crank in a 400 block. Buddy has a 69 C10 shortbed that the 327(from a vette, I suspect may be small journal) died in. So his plan is to pick up a 400 another kid has, put the 327 crank in it, 327 rods, build the top end real nice and hopefully have a good revving 347. I told him he should just run a 377 but he made the good point that he has a 327 crank. Though I have extra 350 cranks /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif. I know 400s have larger journal sizes but you just run bigger bearings(according to mortec) for a 377 so since a large journal 327 crank has the same main size has a 350 it should work. He wants a powerful motor that revs like crazy.
