Ive got a 77 pontiac 400 that i have no use for anymore, i stripped it down and got sidetracked with a different car, its got 1974 heads which i heard gave it more compression, i polished out the heads and port matched the intake manifold, when i took it apart i found that one of the rod journals on the crank had been worn very badly, so the crank needs to be turned, the valves are shop and needs new push rods, other then that i have all the parts, and it needs a rebuild, i ridge reemed the cylinder and honed it as well, i paid only 800 for it so id like to break even but i am willing to go negotiate

Actually, Pontiac didn't designate Big Block or Small Block. The Pontiac 400" shared the smaller main journals with it's smaller brethren (350, etc.).

I know....you can still get big cubes from the 400" block.

Yes this is true you are exactly right. I just answered most of this through PM. Here is the link basically saying the same.
