Big block/Small block?
« on: April 13, 2007, 04:10:02 PM »
Hey, dumb question probably.  I keep hearing 350 small block etc., but have been told all Pontiacs are big blocks.  So is the 350 in my 2bbl. 69 firebird a big block 350?  Plan on starting to work on it so I suppose I should know this at least!  Any responses appreciated.   Thanks all, Dave

Hello Dave. I have read in articles and have been told by people who know a lot more about Pontiac engines than I do that, ALL Pontiac blocks are considered small blocks.

Pontiacs were quite unique. Their blocks were only one size. Just changed bore/stroke combo's. Along with other misc things like journal sizes. But there was no such thing as a pontiac bigblock or small block. Its just a poncho block.
