Are the Dart and Sportsman blocks direct bolt up units as far as bell housings and all the other gear that needs to hang off them?

Re: Dart Blocks

Yes they both have all the same mounting points as stock blocks.

Re: Dart Blocks

Yes mine was 0.020 higher deck [stayed that way] and half a day honeing due to hard bore!!..There was NO other machining to do..Oh some rod bolt clearancing due to stroker, the cylinder come down further than std......Slight machining of engine mounts..Had to clearance dog bones and spider tray for std valve gear to fit..Easy though..
Just need Hi Energy pan and adjust alittle around # four mains cap...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
