Chevy V8 Crankshaft Casting Numbers

Here's a list of Chevy V-8 crankshaft casting numbers. Make sure your crank will work in the block you have. Blocks were made for each crank main journal size. If you are putting a "medium" journal crank from a 350 into a 400 SBC block you can use "spacers" or "thick" main bearings. Cranks also use either a two piece rear main oil seal or a one piece rear main oil seal. Rear oil seal adaptors are available from Chevy or aftermarket suppliers, if you are trying to put a crank designed for a two piece seal into a block made for a one piece seal.
