Before you "guess" and possibly make an error you'll regret, Why not load up the block and take it out for a burger and fries. While you two are riding around, take the time to pass by your favorite machine shop and ask one of those guys to measure your cylinders. You might find that your cylinders were out of spec for the rebuild you were planning and need to be bored oversize.

The odds of finding a 327 with a usable 4" bore is less than winning the lotto.

I've been looking for a good standard bore 350 block for a while myself.
