About this book
Even though the first and second generation of small-block Chevy engines have been on the market forever, there is still a confusing array of configurations that this engine has been released in over the years. Did you know that the famed Chevy 302cid engine used in early Z-28s was pretty much a 327 bore with a 283 stroke in it? Yet to be original, you need to have the original DZ stamped 302 block, and the properly coded crankshaft for that particular application. Are you confused which crank and block combination yield 377 and 383 cubic-inch displacements? Look no further. In this all-color edition of the Chevrolet Small Block Parts Interchange Manual, these mysteries are solved. Includes information on cranks, rods, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, ignitions, and more. It also includes casting and serial number identification guides to help you through the myriad of available parts in salvage yards, swap meets, and on the internet. Also, solid information on performance modifications is included where applicable. If you are building a salvage yard stroker motor from individual parts, looking to make a numbers matching engine for your collectible musclecar, or simply looking to see which parts work together, Chevrolet Small-Block Parts Interchange Manual is a must-have addition to your library.
