Re: 351c Main Girdle

Hi
Thanks for the question.....
First of all...the Main girdle strengthen the whole bottom end.....It will eliminate cap walk....and keep the main "web" from cracking. If your using a "standard" cast block(non-high nickel) and plan on building a higher horsepower engine. Its a good investment in building and maintaining power.
If your using the high nickel blocks.....and plan on making lots of power....I think its very beneficial to use a main girdle for (if for nothing else) keeping bearing bores round.....
Secondly....if you have a 2 bolt block and want to make the bottom end as strong as possible with-out the expense of 4 bolt caps and the machining that goes with them......then the Girdle is much cheaper.
If you have any more questions please feel free to e-me at bw61-1@bresnan.net

Re: 351c Main Girdle

You should be ok.......You may have to clearance a little under the Girdle....But no biggie...Its 3/8 plate...so you have a lot of material to work with

Re: 351c Main Girdle

Hi, and thanks for the reply
They are 3/8'ths plate steel. Your choice of ARP bolts(standard or stud)
2 bolt w/std bolts $269
2 bolt w/stud $289
4 bolt w/std bolts $299
4 bolt w/stud(outer std bolt) $319
SPLAYED cap $349
I'll also sell you the Girdle without bolts(but you need different length) $249
You will have $12.95 shipping in it(usa)
Thanks and let me know.
I'll try again to load pics(forum was not letting me do it) Go to e-bay motors under "parts and accesories) and punch in 351c main girdle in the "search" window and you will see the pictures of it.....
