According to a book called "How to rebuild Killer Big Block chevy" published by SA Design, The 3.935 inch bore is unsuitable for any performance build up. With that said I would say no but I'm not an expert. This book makes no other mention of the 366. Coming from a tow truck I'd venture to say it's had a hard life.

The 366 probably has the peanut port heads also. Pass on it.

When I picked up my 454 from machine shop, the owner suggested I use the peanut port heads instead of my 049's oval port heads. Now I'm nervous as to what he may have done to make a suggestion like that!

The peanut port heads will make tremendous torque. They just don't have the port volume to support high horsepower levels.

this pic shows the difference between the peanut and oval port heads

That about sums it up. You get all the weight with none of the performance of any other BBC. IIRC, it was also designed specifically for trucks and has a taller deck, requiring specific heads and manifolds.

okay so I came across this didnt seem to bad i could prob get it for 100 bucks.
but unsure o the work he metioned in the add.
And called a local machine shop I can get my motor bored over+new pistons,cranked turned and what nots, new seals and everything but a new camshaft and oil pump all for 600 bucks Is that a good deal? I figured it would be something around that price and he has a good rep to his name from a few people ive asked around town (for the 350 btw)

I did relatively the same thing to a 454, got the cam& lifters, oil pump, complete gasket kit and balanced the rods, pistons and crank, plus installed the pistons on the rods, inserted new cam bearings for 1500.00. I think that s a good price for you.

My opinion............get a BBC. You'll be way more happy



You will find a good deal. I have less then $1500 in my entire motor including the machine shop. Get a standard 454 and just match parts. 049 and 781 are great heads and they are cheap.
And stay away from the 366, its not even worth the scrap

They look pretty clean. Those late 60's heads seem to last forever & are good high nickel castings. Check to see if the owner knows what size the chambers are. There are a couple of variations I think, one is a "062" casting & the other is an "092"....the 062 are the more desirable ones for better flow.

I believe these were on 307, 327 & 350 blocks for Camaro & Corvette.

76CC heads might be lower compression.

If you're getting a cam too, you might want to consider newer heads. Check GM performance products for a good set then look on CL or Ebay. You can get a good set prob for around the same money or a little bit more but with a 64CC for a bit higher compression.

Consider an upgrade to a Vortec set up too. The airflow with this type of intake port design is a vast improvement over the "crossover" type manifolds which came with all Chevy Small Blocks back to forever.

A new Vortec aluminum intake is about $200 & you can reuse your 4 BBL carb. A good set of cast iron Vortec heads are about $400/ea (usually with the valves set up). A new cam for this set up that will spin to 5500 & make about 350 horses is another $200 or so as a kit with new lifters. (I bought mine from Comp Cams & it's rated @ 415 lb/ft of torque). I'd show you but I have yet to get the F****** thing running. Head Bang but that's another story. Rolling Eyes

Of course you might need new rockers, push rods & such also.

My '74 had 76cc heads on it stock...not a very performance oriented head. I put some 58 cc 305 heads on (with thick head gaskets to raise compression slightly). What a difference in low end power, makes for really good burnouts.
