    327 pistons for 6 inch rods rare?

    I have a small journal 327 im building and have the chance to aquire some nice aluminum rods for it (suposedly 6 inch) but when I search for a set of +.030 327 pistons for 6 inch rods I cannot seem to find any, but I do see them for 5.850 inch rods.

    Maybe someone can shed some light on this subject.

    Would it be possible to use a piston designed for a 5.7 inch rod / 3.48 inch stroke in place of a 6 inch rod / 3.25 in stroke?

    I cant seem to find a chart that shows the varoius pin locations to figure it out for myself.

    NO!!!,
    The block deck height is 9.00, you do the math. With a 327 crank, thats 1.750 1/2 stroke. Add the rod length 6.000 or what ever, it needs to total 9.00 total in the end. I think it's 1.375 compression height with 6.0 rods on the piston, but again you do the math.
