These will turned into 850-900 HP drag engines, I was always told some are strong, some are junk and thin???

We were also always told that some stupid alphanumeric digits on "insert block here" meant it has "high nickel" and so, it's harder than a regular block. Yet here we are in 2022 and NO ONE has verifiable proof that its a fact. Because it isn't. It's nonsense that people repeat because they've heard a million times.

And it's always been nonsense. Just because you hear it 50k times doesn't make it true. Just FYI. Take things "everybody says" with a grain of salt without some sort of self-verification that it's actually true.

Being an auction you'll need something quick and crude for checking core shift. Hopefully it's a bare block or at least the flexplate is off. On the back side take a look at the cam boss cast into the block. Try and see how close the cam plug is centered in the boss. It's a good "indicator" of core shift. It will show core shift up or down and left or right. Good luck!

if you raced as much as you talk, you'd be another FORCE.......
I can't believe how much you talk without pictures of action........\
just another NasttyZ wannabe...... am I wrong?\

38 thousand posts..... and I will be willing to bet not one of a race and less than 5 of an actual race car.

I wouldn't waste any money on the old truck blocks...most had very thin cylinders and all have the oil galley on the pan rail. Yeah, some will come on here and brag about how good they are, they made XXX hp and no issues, blah blah blah....they are fine for stock and mild performance builds, but nothing serious. I'd save my money and get a decent block no matter the price difference.
