Re: not happy need new block

Blocks are the same just have to move the dipstick to rear hole , it's already there but plugged with a bearing . Possible thought for damage to old block maybe gudgeon pin has slid across .

Like BLKEBXR8 said, its the gudgeon pin. Its reasonably common.

Re: not happy need new block

if the rest of the block is fine & all the pistons are good ask a machine shop about re-sleaveing the damaged bore
