    What is a stroker engine doing in a 97? You are talking about the timing tab missing on the cover right? This is not a crank trigger engine? The damper has the line cut in it right? And yes there is a distributor in the engine right?

You could bring it up on tdc on comp stroke and make your own mark on crank pulley and block then at least you know where tdc is and google some 383's that have close to same equip as you and see what degree they are running or just play with it and see how it runs .

The problem is an old one & not seen a lot anymore. It's called dieseling. The way I always fixed it was a well kept secret and a highly scientific method. Put some wooden clothes pins on any exposed metal fuel lines in the engine compartment. Hope it cures your problem and good luck!!

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

383 Stoker Chevy dies when I put it in gear


That converter should make stalling less of an issue, not more. (stall speed is higher than stock) Make sure that you have the cam degreed in properly, that you have the timing set properly (I'd use 8-12 degrees to begin) and make sure that you have no vacuum leaks.
With a stock converter, you shouldn't use any cam with more than 220 degrees duration...With the higher stall converter, you may get a few more degrees leeway. Also, the carb is too small for the application...should have at least a 750 dbl pumper or larger on there depending largely upon the car weight, gearing and what you have as far as intake and exhaust. (header diameter, length and design)...This should have been all figured out on paper before spending a dime for parts...Biggest mistake I see is people putting "mis-matched" parts together and expecting it to work (everything needs to compliment everything else)
