Re: 383 Block Notching
There is no real detailed info on notching a 350 block because all the blocks and stroker kits are a llittle different -- all have to be checked. Maybe there is a book somewhere that tells you how, but the bottom line is you need to make sure there is at least .050" clearance between all your moving parts (bearings are obviously not .050" -- they are more like .0025" rod and .003" main).
1. Crank counterweights to oil pan rails
2. Connecting rod bolts to oil pan rails.
3. Connecting rod bolts to cam lobes (especially cylinders 1,2,5,6).
4. Piston skirts to crank counterweights.
I made a go/no-go gauge from a piece of coat hanger that I flattened to .050" on the end. Then the coat hanger wire can be bent to reach whatever tight spot I need to check.
