Hi guys, I used to be able to go to my search engine and just enter, "what is the block height or deck height on a 440 Chrysler engine" and would get a handful of links and the answer to my question in a few seconds. Now it's a mess.

I'm wondering if any of you guys have old engine manuals or links to resources that I could use.

I'm gathering parts for our next race engine for this summer and am in the process of ordering a set of BME pistons and rods right at the moment.
I'm using a set of Stage V Hemi conversion heads on a .060 over 440 block and the 4.15" stroke crank. I can say for sure the heads haven't been decked because I CC'd them but the block on the other hand I can't say for sure it's not been decked. It would kinda suck to find out it has been after the pistons were already made.

I used to be a member of a few different Mopar racing discussion forums but they've all gone dark by now.

So any info or links would be awesome,

Thanks,

Wayne

pull the heads and measure with a straight edge across the hole down to the piston . this is 100% the only way to go to be 100% sure what ya got ---------------------------------------------later

The advertised deck height is 10.725", but as Chuck stated, it's difficult to measure accurately. You really need to mock it up and find out.

Agreed. Published specs are not always 100% accurate for 100% of the time.
