Default 327 vs 350 rods & pistons

OK, so probably a dumb-azz question: can one use 327 piston/rod combo in a 350, given same overbore? I am thinking there is a difference in pin location. Would appreciate good input only. Thanks.

Default The sky is the limit on sb chevy parts swapping.

Sounds like u could use a small block chevy interchange manual to keep you out of trouble. I have one by Ed Staffel but there maybe more up to date books out now. Items like piston compressed height become very important when changing piston and rod combination s and when changing block deck height too.
Chevy made a lot of good performance parts that can be found used at pocket change prices. But u have to know which part will work for your combo.

Good luck,

My brother is rebuilding a worn-out 350 and I have several sets of 327 rod/piston sets in the attic. I was just checking to see if I could slip him some money savers. Thanks for the info.

The 327's before '68 have a small journal rod big end (2.00 ) and all 350's had the large journal (2.10) so the rods might not fit dependent apon their model year

Thanks rodj, I had a set of large journal rods & pistons. He got a great deal on a set of Crowers so now he doesn't have a problem.
