A friend of mine was cleaning out his moms garage and fuond asteel bowtie crankhe had from the early 80's,still in the box wrapped in plastic,looks brand new.I can get it almost for nothing.It is a350 crank,what would it take to use it in my '68 327.I am no engine builder,but I would like to use this crank and 327 rods if possible.If not what would be a good combo for this block and crank?I also have a set of vortec heads I got for free when a friend up graded to aluminum.

The 68 327engine used the large journal rods and will work with the 350 crank. You just need a set of 350 pistons and you'll be good to go. Would be a good idea to get the rotating ***'y balanced if possible.

You are actually just building a 350. As already stated you will need different pistons, as the compression height is different. The 327 and the 350 used the same rods (when they were both large journal crankshafts), so you can use those. (5.7")
