Default 427 TALL BLOCK

A freind of mine has a Chevy 427 tall block[short block assembly] no heads or intake-- he was going to put in his street rod[but found out it was going to cost more to build then he wanted]
all standard bore and crank specs
??? is it worth hooking on to or just let it go somewhere else???

and yeah guys-I KNOW IT IS A CHEVY :? :?

If I could get it reasonably cheap I'd get it...

They are difficult to use in a street car because the extra deck height can cause issues with headers etc...but for a race car maybe not so much...I believe it makes it easier to put a long stroke crank in it. jmo I've never had a tall deck. The tall deck is 10.2 and the standard deck is 9.8 FYI

Important item to know. Same 6.135 rod length pistons go into tall deck using 6.535 aftermarket rod. No custom pin placement!
