New edition. Includes Gen I, Gen II, LT1, LT4, Vortec and SB2 engines.
First and second generation small-block Chevy engines have been on the market for a while, but they have been released in a confusing array of configurations.
To give you an example:
- Did you know that the Chevy 302 c.i. engine used in early Z-28 Camaros was really a 327 bore with a 283 stroke?
- Are you confused by which crank and block combination yield 377 and 383 cubic inch displacements?
Look no further!
These questions and more are answered in Chevrolet Small Block Parts Interchange Manual, which includes info on cranks, connecting rods, cylinder heads, intake manifolds, ignitions, and more.
Also included are casting and serial number identification guides to help you sort through parts available in salvage yards, swap meets and online. Plus you'll also find good information on performance modifications, where applicable.
If you're looking to build a salvage-yard stroker motor from individual parts, or want to build an engine with matching numbers for your muscle car, or just want to know which parts will work together, Chevrolet Small Block Parts Interchange Manual is required reading and a valuable addition to your library.

ZZ4 350 HO CRATE MOTOR
"The crate motor business is booming and in 1996 Chevrolet introduced the next evolution of the Gen I ZZ series of high-output, over-the-counter engines. The ZZ4 350 (PN 24502609) design incorporated a number of changes to increase power."
"The four-bolt, cast-iron Gen I block uses a set of second-generation LT1 hypereuttectic pistons, which give a 10:1 compression ratio. A rolled, filler-cast LT4 crankshaft and one-piece rear main seal are also used. The 5.7-inch powdered metal connecting rods are used. The motor also gets an 8-inch degreed vibration damper and a composite timing chain cover with a timing pointer."
"The hydraulic roller camshaft (PN 10185071) has .475/.510-inch lift with durations at .050-inch lift of 208/221."
