the cubic inch displacement of the enging doesn't dictate it being a big block or small block. the engine design does.
They do make a small block that can have splayed valve heads giving the look of a big block

i have seen them before. they are aftermarket and not the stock design. the engine pictured didn't have such heads on it.

my thinking is he has bored and stroked a small block, upping the cubic inches. displacement doesn't make it a big block.

That's why the best way to tell is to look at the spacing of the exhaust ports.

Good times at Auto Zone (I worked there once) I worked with a guy who thought he new EVERYTHING. Seriously, the guy thought he was GOD. One time I was talking about the 383 in our Chevelle and one of the guys I was working with said, "What's a Stroker" Mr. Know-It-All is standing right there and says, "It's when you put a big block crank in a small block." HAHA Dude, I would like to see you fit a big block crank in a small block...

i have heard some say pretty close to the same thing! i even told one guy, they wouldn't fit. his response was, "i know you have to turn the mains down so that it does fit" hmmmm....i just had to leave that one alone!

It would take some serious redneck engineering to get one to fit... and even then you would be lucky to get it to turn over.

Thanks, I wasn't there when they painted it but I did a lot of the body work. Hopefully they didn't screw it up!!

i can't remember how much longer the big block crank is compared to the small block crank, but seriously doubt the mains would line up!

My youngest son likes to go into parts stores like Auto Zone and ask for parts for his 1942 Ford GPW (Jeep). They always say the same thing. "A what?"
