## What to do with BBC 427 tall deck?

The specs for the 427 truck block are IDENTICAL in bore and stroke to the standard 427 with the expection of the block, and the tall deck is heavier as well.

here this calculator will help the standard BBC has a 9.8″ deck height, the TALL block has a 10.2″ deck thats .400 taller, so youll want to use standard 454 pistons to keep the cost low and make up the differance in connecting rod length for a better rod/stroke ratio.

## How big of a stroker do I need for a tall deck?

I would look into putting together your own kit if using a tall deck. You can use the same pistons that a normal stroker kit would use (6.135″ rod) if you use a 6.535″ rod, plus this give you a better rod to stroke ratio.

You can use the same pistons that a normal stroker kit would use (6.135″ rod) if you use a 6.535″ rod, plus this give you a better rod to stroke ratio. Get your crank (4.25″ stroke), pistons and rings for your overbore and the longer rod – that is basically what the factory did with the 8.1 ltr to get the rod to stroke ratio to 1.52.

For Chevy street enthusiasts, this is where the stroker world begins. A quick deck clearance calculation for any piston and rod combo is block deck height – ½ stroke – piston compression height – rod length.
