GT was a manual trans and GTA was an automatic?
 
Another bingo!  The differences were as simple as that.

i always thought that the 340 had a 4.040 inch bore and a 3.313 inch stroke(same as 318 AND 273. while the 360 had a 4.000 inch bore and a 3.580 inch stroke.
 
You could be right.  It might have been strtoke versus bore.  I do know the 400 was a bored 383 - that's what I was working from.  And as you said earlier, it was done for lower emmisions, not power.

hmm a 440CI LA. lol i could even put 440 badges on susan





I can't remember the magazine off the top of my head right now, but recently there was an article in a Mopar mag about building a 440 out of a 360.  Check it out!

yea but you can't say Cobra 427 or Fairlane GTA without thinking of performance or racing.
 
I agree and wasn't disputing you.  But in the spirit of trivia, we need to remember that Ford made two 427s.
 
By the way, I wrote "GT(A)."  What's the difference between a GT and a GTA?

I don't know, but to quote a lot of magazines, "Why bother?  Get a 360 and go from there."
 
I love the 318, but it is often treated as the small-block version of the 383: people will trip over them in junk yards looking for something else.  Neither motor gets much respect.

Ok what changes and improvments where made between the 360 and when the 340 came out?
 
The 340 was introduced in '68 and tan until '73.  The 360 was a bored-out and lowered compression version of the 340.  However, the 360 has larger crank journals than the 340, so it can actually be built larger and stronger than the 340.  That's why a lot of magazines will say "buy a 360" whenever someone one asks about building a 318.

The Chevy 302 was available in '67-'69.  I thought it was only '69, but a Chevy guy corrected me recently at a show.
 
I knew they were getting 440 out of a 360, but I did not know they had gotten as much as 572!  Wow!

That's a 2/3rds Bingo!  You forgot the 427 "side oiler" that was in the 427 Cobra and Fairlane GT(A).  But your answer about the 428 is "spot on" as our British friends would say!

OK, let me see how you did:
 
Chrysler's 350 is a trivia question I like to toss out at people.  (Did they make one?)  I do the same with these questions:  [color=#00ff00 size=3]YES  Forgot the year  late 50's[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]This was mentioned earlier - 1958, Plymouth only.[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
Did Chevy ever build a 302?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]Yes  Camaro[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]Bingo!  Which year(s)?[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
What's the difference between a Chevy 400 and a Chevy 400?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]2 bolt or 4 bolt?  Big or small block?  Need to specify that. . all of the above[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]I was thinking small vs. big block, but the last comment is also correct![/color]
[color=#00ff00 size=3][/color] 
If Chrysler's 350 and Chevy's 348 are both big blocks, how come a Pontiac 455 and an AMC 401 are not?  [color=#00ff33 size=3]Not sure, But I would think space problems in AMC Bodies[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]No!  Here's a common misunderstanding.  Unlike Mopar, Chevy, or Ford, Pontiac (and others) and AMC only had one block that was bored and stroked to different sizes.  Since Mopar had the LA and B/RB motors, and nothing could be interchanged between the two, one was considered "big" and the other "small."  It had/has nothing to do with cubes.  The AMC 390 and 401 blocks had a raised deck that the 290, 304, 343, and 360 blocks did not have, but they were not "bog blocks" as so many people errornously call them.  AMC did have another series of motors that were introduced in '55, the largest of which was a 327, but those motors were discontinued once the new motors were introduced.[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
Which Chrysler motor had the largest pistons?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]MMMMM It's not a 440 or 426[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]It's the 400.[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
WHy does a Ford 427 have more horsepower than a Ford 428? 
[color=#ff0000 size=3]No guess?[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
WHy won't headers for a Chevy 350 fit on a Pontiac 350?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]Two completely different engines[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]Bingo again![/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
Why is a Chrysler 318 physically larger than a Chevy 350?  318 Has deeper skirts to support the main caps Same question for a Chrysler 350 and an AMC 401?
[color=#ff0000 size=3]Actually, it has everthing to do with math.  Your answer is probably perfectly acceptable, but a cylinder's volume has nothing to do with how physically large a motor is.  [/color]
 
Ta Daaaa!

Bingo!  Albeit they were the same c.i.d., they were entirely different motors.  Therefore, headers for a Chevy 360 would not fit on a Buick 350, etc.  My former Brother-in-law discovered that on his '71 Skylark 350. 
 
Now, your question: the Caddy 502 was a Caddy motor only.  So, if you mean a "Crate GM 502," I would say that was a stroked 454 or other motor and not the same.
 
Do I win?

Absolutely right, Moe.  But another fact - it was available in Plymouth only!

Why is a Chrysler 318 physically larger than a Chevy 350?  Same question for a Chrysler 350 and an AMC 401?
 
I'm weird, but I like this kind of stuff!

Tater, the LA motor originated in '64 with the introduction of the 273 small block.  That block was bored to 318 c.i.d. in '67, then 340 in '68, and finally 360 in '72.
 
It's called "LA" to diferentiate it from the original "A" 318 that was phased out in '66.  This is not written in any Chrysler History, but I always think of "LAter A" becasue it came after the A.
 
The Big blocks introduced in '58 were either B or RB.  The RB meant "raised B" because its deck was one inch higher than the B.  The result is a wider motor - the 413/440 is 2" wider at the heads than the 383. 
 
BUT!!!!  Be careful, the '59-'60 383 is an RB!  Tricksy!!

Bobby, I was wondering about the OHC commentas well.
 
I don't get the comparison to the 340 at all.  They look similar?  So does a small block Chevy.  The only thing one could use from a 340 - or any LA block for that matter - on an early hemi is the carb.  I just don't get that comparison.
 
Who said that?
