T. Meyer I think it is. They'd be a 400 crank with the mains spun down to 2.75" down from 3". Probably some sort of Chev rod and/or custom pistons. Either that or full custom rods.

In the past, 400 engines were worth scrap over there, so cores were cheap. They were made for 12 years vs only 4 for the clevo, so plenty more around. Dunno about now, folks are waking up to their bang-for-buck potential.

Never heard of that one, but sounds like a real chugger with about 4.7" stroke. That's diesel truck territory. Serious piston speed there

You can buy lifter bore sleeve kits, now.  Ream out, press in sleeve, ream again, problem solved. 

Simples.

Also saw on Roadkill Garage with the Clevo Commando build, (408C 650hp solid roller)

about new lifters (solid roller tho) so you don't have to bush lifter bores, I'll look up who made them later.

 

I'd love to build a 440 Clevo, Arrow block 4.125" bore, Scat 4.100" crank, Scott Cook SCM alloy heads, SCM air supremacy intake, BIG high lift solid roller cam,

But for now I'll plan a 351 hyd roller or 393/408 AFD. after I rebuild my mates mystery 351c
