350 engine differences

Is there a difference in a chevy 350 car engine and truck engine. Just wondering? I didn't know that there was a difference?

Depending on the year. The differences are all internal. They bolt up the same.

Very minor differences. Generally just in the nickel content of the block & some other strengthening in the deck and around the main webs around the crank on the truck blocks. Really very minor differences and a well built 350 out of a car will do fine in any truck. All parts of a 350, whether truck or car, interchange depending on year. Up thru 1985 Chev 350's had a two peice rear main seal, in 86 they started one peice rear mains. In 87 they started using roller cams.

And computer wise on late model EFI 350s there can be important 'minor' differences. Generally speaking a 96 or older is easier to swap than a 97 or newer. Mainly because of the VATS - Vehicle Anit Theft System - built into the ignition. So items like this may differ on the car and truck model years right around 96/97 when they were beginning this technology.
