    When I was at the dealership the other day helping my friend buy that '91 K5, I spent some time shooting the bull with the salesman. Anyways, he said something like he'd give us even more of a price break if we could get his Chevy engine trivia question right. He asked me what all the different sizes of small blocks did they make from 55-the mid 90's. So quickly I came up with: 265, 283, 305, 307, 327, 350, 400. He mentioned the 302 which I can't believe I forgot about. He also said I missed two others. A 263 that was used in Monzas and a 267 that was used in mostly Monte Carlos. Is that correct? Did he leave any out?

    It's not a 263, but rather a 262, which was used in Monzas in the mid 70s. And yes, the 267 was also a valid engine. The 262 was wild with like a 3.5" bore and a 3.1" stroke, or something close to that.

    Thank you. Maybe it was the 267 that had the 3.5" bore x 3.48" stroke (same stroke as a 350 and 305). Correct me if I'm wrong...I'm too lazy to look it up!!!

    Yup, 267 - 3.5002 bore, 3.48 stroke. I'm lazy too, but it's better than the work I'm supposed to be doing.

    262 are good boat anchors. Good thing you didn´t mention the 262 to the salesman, or else he would´ve though you were a sailor[​IMG]

    The 348 and 409 were not considered small blocks...and 409s weren't introduced until 1961...only 348s were available from 1958 and up. I'm building a 348 with factory tri-power for my restored '58 Chevy 4x4 NAPCO panel truck...I'm sick of the power of the original 235!!!

    235 V6 right? those were a good engine, I know a couple of people who have them and if they don't overheat and crack a cylinder they are wonderful but underpowered for trucks.

    348 and 409 are big block engines.
