i made this thread before, but i didnt want to bring it back from the dead because it kinda went off topic
anyway, can anyone take some pictures of the bottom of their block, SBC, pref. a SJ, i need pictures with no crank so you can see the bottom of the bores
the reason i ask is because a few years ago when i took my 327 block out of the car i noticed a few "chunks" taken out of the bottom of the bore, but im not sure if it is normal or not.
here are some pictures:
you can see what im talking about on the right side of the cylinder
this is cylinder number eight, it looks pretty messed up, im not home right now, so i cant check if any other cylinders are like this, but i dont think they are
on this pic you can see it at the bottom of the cam
Is it possible to tell from these pictures? When i get home i can take new ones, but for now, its all i have.
if it is damaged, should i be worried about building the block? Its not every day that you can find a sj sbc with a stock bore that doesnt need to be bored out, but i would like to rev this little engine as much as possible
thanks for any comments
