I thought the 366 was a tall deck big truck motor,I heard they were not too good to build for a performance motor and you might be better off with a 402 if you are looking for a cheap big block.

Yep a 366 is a tall deck truck motor, and is not a good choice for performance, as no parts from a reguler BB will interchang. They are mostly 2 bolt mains and all are cast cranks, even when they were in trucks people didn't like them because the had no grunt even with the long stroke.

I have one in my garage that Randy bought off me about a year ago. He still hasn't picked it up. Cool for the look but no balls and they SUCK the gas!

I know of a mid 80s C30 in a junkyard that has a 454 that would make a better motor.
