Too much is never enough for me. I've been collecting some old K-341's, and now even a K-361.

Snow blows really hard, and I'm on the verge of building a Super Single. 16 or 18, or even 20hp might blow snow, but the more the better!

One way, is follow the old rule, "There is no substitute for cubic inches." Which I tend to agree with. It would make power, while maintaining a "usable" powerband. It would not be the only way I would go though, cam, carb, etc. all the usual tricks would be included.

All that said, what is the MAXIMUM bore and stroke I can use in a K-341 and K-361 stock block? Or even a K-321, I got a couple of those out there too...

Thanks for insight, Dale

:rocker2:Why not just put a Chevy Small Block in? 305s are basically free right now, and parts are plentiful.

I don't think you would be able to get more then .030 on the bore due to finding pistons that will work unless you are going to have one custom made. As for the stroke I remember seeing something about being able to change the stroke a little bit but I don't remember the details. You can also get a machined head and change the compression ratio.
