Re: What block to use w/ 434 c.i. stroker kit????
Maybe I am just nieve but I don't understand the problem with using a factory cast 400 block. I have a 511 casting block that I intend to use to make the 434 stroker a 440 stroker by boring it to .060 oversize. 4.00 inch stroke crank and 6.00inch H beam rods. I understand that there are clearance issues, but it will go together just fine and the 511 casting block was a little heavier duty that say, a 509 or 518 casting with 2 bolt mains. I do realise that a custom block is allways a great way to go, but a cast block will work just fine I would think.
