What 4 bolt is this?
Had a look at a 4 bolt main block with no engine number.
It is said to have race car team origins - possibly the Big M team and the block could be a USA import. As far as I can tell its a 351 block ( has 4MA crank) but no extra webbing or meat down the sides above the sump rails - so its not a Nascar block.
It has the following casting numbers :-
D2AE-CA with 2C29 below.
The 1st number could be DZAE-CA and the number below could be 2G29 or 2029.
It is as new (no rust in water galleries) but has been run and threw a rod with minor damage to bottom of bore on one cylinder but this would not affect its usability or need repair. Bore is said to be original
Can anyone throw any light on this? Any ideas on value? Also, what is the 4MA worth (still original size)
The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"
