Re: [FWDLK] 350/361 observation



Pretty sure the 350, 361, 383 and 400 are all B engines, except the previously mentioned RB 383.  They all have the 3.38" stroke.  The 350 was a 1958 only engine, the RB cam out in 1959 as the first RB engine, pretty sure about that.

Just my 2 cents as far as I know the 350 is a raised block and the 361 is a low block or a (B) engine the 350 should be a (RB)  I used my 361 crank with a 1970 383 block, but I would have liked to use a 400 but couldn't locate one but the 383 is a ball. A 350 you can use a 440 to gain cubic inches.

I've seen on a couple of forums over the years that the 350 is easily
bored out to 361 size.  Hope that is true, have a set of 361 rings
and pistons waiting for a rebuild.
