    I've found some pretty good, lighlty used cranks on ebay, and was wondering if I wanted to stroke my engine to 383 if there was anything else i had to do other than put the crank in and turn the key?

    yeah, lots of machining involved. the crank needs machining and so does the block.

    you have to balance stroker, you just can't throw a 400 crank in and go, I wouldn't buy anything without mic'n it first, I wouldn't buy things like cranks, or anything precision off e bay, you'll get ripped off
