Dang. That's infuriating! I can see why you're a little testy about this - the stupid thing is advertised and no one will admit to having one. It would make sense for people like World products and other companies to make these available in the future since it is a smaller engine and more people will be wanting to modify them. Sorry about yanking your chain, I certainly didn't mean to.This thread will self distruct in 5 seconds.
Misinformation. The ad is for an aluminum (not iron, as you mistakenly suppose) BowTie block #14011069. I posted it not saying that "I had one" but to make the point that they do exist.That absolutely is a racing engine. 3.52 stroke and 6.00 rods. These iron engines use SBC standard 3.48 stroke and 5.7 rods.
More misinformation. There is no such thing as an "odd-fire" block. Chevy made two-piece seal crankshafts for only one year - but they did make them, so the two-piece seal issue is not insurmountable.It is also an odd fire two piece seal.
Part #10134371 is a dry sump only block which has no mechanical fuel pump boss and is not really suited for an aircraft conversion due to the lack of a mechanical fuel pump.When I spoke with GM ferformance on the phone yesterday and gave them the part #10134371 for the 90 degree V6...
You have accused me of being full of crap, but none of the statements I've made are untrue. The things you've accused me of saying were just made up by you. Your assertion that I have no right to argue about any thing with you because I haven't built an engine is also false because it is an ad hominem argument which is a patently false type of argument. I do not owe anything to you least of all to go and find something you want - if I try to do that, and even if I fail, I am not "full of crap". I am a member of this forum and like anyone else here, I can argue with you about anything airplane related as much as I like as long as I keep it civil, which is something you have failed to do.So when I hear someone say they have an aluminum 4.3 vortec engine, the first thing I want to know is, where did you get it and when they don't respond with a source that can be confirmed, I immediatly think they are full of crap based on my extensive research of course.
