Is this a 9.8" or 10.2" deck height block? How many inches are you wanting to build?

it's a 9.8" .060 over bore now and he has a set of pistons for his stock stroke and rod length;;;what the deal is;;is he needs a crank and while down wants to upgrade on rods;;i have a new set of H beams w/l19 bolts that is 6.535" if there is any way he can use mine so he will only need to buy crank then;;doesn't matter on size eng. just trying to keep from buying rods if we can use mine;

With the 9.8" deck height block. You could run a 4" stroke crank with those 6.535 rods with a piston that has a 1.265 pin height. The 1.27 pin height piston is pretty common. So depending on how much you have had your block decked you may be able to use the 1.27 piston. It's only .005 different.

If you wanted to build a 496 engine. You could run a 4.250 crank, with your rods, and order a set of pistons with a pin height of 1.14".

Might check my math with the people you choose to buy your crank and pistons from.

Has this block been decked at all?

Your going to have to buy new pistons to use those rods...In a stock 4"stroke using a standard 454 piston that has a pin height for a 6.135 rod...

Good point Barry, I should have brought that out at first rather than implying it. My bad.
