Well I just found a site that said something like "The 3 primary differences of the 400 sbc to all/most other small blocks....." on a website in a google search.....

Maybe I'm too old to play but to keep good thread running I can think of one main difference: center cylinders are joined together on 400... That's why I also have not heard of steam holes on 350. I'm fairly sure rods on 400s are shorter. That would be 3 differences and are not about bore, stroke or cubic inches, hehehe.
I can add one more just in case: 350s are internally balanced while 400 are externally. Do I get bonus points?

Yet I still see wrong answers and tangents (like the ones about not re-writing history and the like) every other post, so clearly something of that nature has not occured. I suggested LOCK IT, PM a thread mod., he posts answer and new question, REPEAT.

An ape could follow those directions. Simple... but the people justify simplicity when they can't make anything else work.

You may know a lot about cars but your people skills are a little rusty.


And this post has been a irrelevant post to the original topic, though I feel that it might instill a small shred of deviance towards the original topic again so I'm clicking *submit* anyways.

Maybe if your answer didn't look like a jumbled pile of sh*t, it would be easier for someone to read and comprehend. Why is it so hard to answer in a clear and concise format such as this?

1. Answer #1

2. Answer #2

3. Answer #3

Hell if I know. Additionally, based on your previous posts you are just a bit too old for this game. Will it really raise your self esteem if you can win a game designed for teenagers?

That may rise my esteem of you, is a healthy respect for strangers and a bit of more good natured humor. I don't need to deal with this type of attitude. I'm out of here.

ok this is originally posted by skeetin, but hasn't recieved credit so I'll try his answers

1 There is no space between adjacent cylinder liners making the block unsually rigid and not prone to cylinder bore flexing.
2 This block used a much larger 2.65 inch main bearing assuring that crankshafts from all other blocks would not fit without special oversize bearings
3 This is the only small-block that used a 5.56 inch long connecting rod compared to the 5.7 inch connecting rod in all other displacements.

just off the top of my head, i was gonna say main journals are bigger, siamesed cylinders w/ steam holes in the deck (and heads), and externally balanced... is that what you are looking for? or did i miss a qualification (i just scanned the thread...)

Oh so close. All three of them have correct facts, but only two are completely correct. The third one however, needs some work due to incomplete/misleading information. There really are some easier answers to be had. Don't make it harder than it has to be.
