    What's the piston dish size and how far is it in the hole?zero decked. I can tell you the exact icon # tomorrow.


    Any chance on the name of the crank vendor?
    BluePrint Engines. I say that b/c I buy them from the same supplier in raw form, as the "favorites" , and I machine them here in Nebraska.
    I know you're using magnum blocks, do you have any early blocks in your collection, and would you be willing to put la cam bearings in one of you did? We are completely out of LA blocks. That's why I developed and launched these, and the roller cam 408 engines.

    Thanks, just wanted to make sure it wasn't an eagle crank.

    I understand you're out of la blocks, I was wondering if you have any early magnum blocks with the oiling holes machined in them. I'm not ready to move to pushrod oiling yet, but my current block is beat up, and I'm looking to move to a stroker

    Just a suggestion, but you could externally oil the heads too.

    Magnum vs LA block...differences...preferences

    My powertour build will have pushrod oiling. Will gladly pass on my findings to my customers. And offer that engine also as a longblock.

    Gotcha. Crank is not an eagle.
    I believe those blocks are pretty rare. I would doubt it unfortunately. And if we did, they would go to filling the last round of "la headed" longblocks that a supplier ordered.

      Thanks Johnny. It's really a killer deal on just price alone, plus the warranty. My CR would be too low with that dish size, plus I'm not 100% certain my mechanical roller lifters would fit.

      Glad to see you bringing stuff for Mopars, even if it doesn't seem like it will work for me.

      68cc closed chamber aluminum, with the cam I'm using, I'm going for 10.5 static with .036-.040 quench.
