The tall deck block is 5/8 taller.It will except an overbore around .160 .Install a 454 shaft , stock length rods,custom set of pistons and you have 496 inches.It has been along time since I have done this but if I remember right Venolia or Keith Black make the pistons.You might inquire about piston heights from the manufacture to get your compression ratio where you want it.Cheap stroker.

Wow, I had no idea it would be that easy to stroke. I might just do that. The weight of the motor is really not that big of a difference (50# from the 235), so I think I will stay with it. I am too excited!

Much too young to feel this damn old?

Tallblock pros and cons
pros: tons-o-torque
cons: won't rev for long
Or you can build a 496 stroker,run 8:1 forged pistons and an 8-71 blower at 10% underdriven and make some really impressive torque. eek grin

Just a piece of advice from a person who has spent all the inheritance money of his rich uncle when he got out of the "poor house".

As far as the tall decks go in stock form , once you get that 80lb flywheel off of it & get rid of the govenor carb it does pretty good . We put a few of them in 1/2&3/4 ton pickups with good results. Change camshaft and a set ot headers does wonders. Some of them have tiny valves and a
head change really helps. All said they make a great torque motor. Around here you can find them pretty easy [ cental Pa. ]

good heads and a matching cam can easily put you over 500 hp with the stock stroke
