    Bearing crush holds everything in place on all engines. The tabs just locate the bearing during assembly. Modern engine no longer use tangs... for the most part.

      Really? I had not knowed dat. lol Have you got a picture of a 360 block where ALL the lifter bores are not chamfered? I've never seen one and I've seen a lot of 360 blocks. I've seen some that had a few not chamfered, but not one that had them all not chamfered.

        IIRC, the one that Chris has doesn’t have the lifter bores chamfered.

          I’ll post some pics of another one later. It has some lifter bores chamfered but the chamfers are much lighter than the counter bores I’ve seen in most 340 blocks. But I still like seeing lifter angle correction with bushed lifter bores in the all out stuff.
