    I got a pontiac 400 engine for sale,according to the pontiac site's i have visited it is a ram air 3 400. It is a 4 bolt main block and really the only one i've ever seen.my cousin took out the crank and main caps to put in to a 455 ho and put ho crank/caps back into 400 and wondered why it had a "knock" to it when ran, this is a pretty complete engine has intake on it (4 barrel)timing cover,oil pan, basicly a compete motor, it just needs some work. I'm cleaning out my shed to put my 78 se trans-am in to restore and i need the space,anyone interested let me know, I live in North Carolina.Thanks,conoverbandit

    What ya want for it? I have one of those 4 bolt blocks, no rare, but not common. It came in alot of late 60s- through early 70s cars.

    How did the 455 crank fit into the 400 since there is a 1/4" difference in the mains? Does it have a dist, and heads? if so whats the casting # on the heads?

    have no idea, i've always heard the everything from 326 to 455 was same thing just different bore and stroke, i'll look tomm. on heads and see what i can find out. I don't know how he done it, but i know he did it, cause i seen the 455 block at his house with 4 bolt main caps on the block but only 2 bolt in each one, I asked him and he said they were fromt he 400 i have now, i tried to get other motor from him so i could put the main caps and crank back in this engine, but as of yet i have'nt been able to get him to sell it to me. Thanks,conoverbandit
