A dumb question: I have a new crankshaft in our parts inventory that is labeled: Crower BB Ford 427 "Stoker".  I am guessing that this was just mislabeled and should be a stroker  crankshaft.
does anyone know if there is a "stoker" label that is legit that I have missed?

thanks in advance.

Do you know what the stroke is? Or can you measure it?

    Congratulations!   If it IS truly a Ford crank , it was made to use a 6.386 rod to allow the use of a "regular" 427 Ford piston ( 3.78 stroke and 6.490 rod length) . The cubic inches would be around 450.  Top of the Hill is in Livermore Ca and should be able to fill you in on the details. Ask for Craig.

WHY does the Tag say 427 Chevy?  Chevy DID build a 427.

Thanks guys!  I am going to speak to the Top of the Hill guys when I am back from thanksgiving.  I now have no idea if this was for a Ford or a Chevy - but I now know where to ask.

happy turkey day to all.

      Check the "snout" of the crank . If it is about 3-4 inches long , it is a Chevy. If it is 6-7 inches long and has two "key ways" it is a Ford. Very easy way to tell.
