Thanks. I have twin carbies and I don;t have $1800 for a brand new set. The Webber option wont look as period as I would like so I'll pass on that.

i have a really good block in my shop.

i sonic tested it years ago for the previous owner before i bought the business - it has been bored to 3 1/4" and still had thicker bores than the ej block i was testing to see if it could go out to 3 1/8".

there is an fj racer guy that keeps onto me about it, but he has never actually offered me a $$ figure as yet. i know what its worth and will not be giving it away for a song.

if you are serious about a good build, a block that can take custom pistons of this size is very valuable with such a small capacity engine, as the cubes gained help a lot. i say custom pistons cause the acl 149 pistons they used to run are all but impossible to find now.

I believe Cosworth pistons are used by the more serious contenders at the track these days, Lindsay.

I have a few blocks, not at 3 1/4 though. I am unsure at what price range that would fetch so I think it's unfair to offer. You can email me at greyfc@gmail.com and we can discuss?

this block would have been last run in the 80's if not the 70'sโ€ฆ repco used to make pop top performance cast pistons and what not.

i would have thought these days the big boys have custom forged pistons made to suit whatever combo they want.

I saw a grey motor with waggot head (just a standard head with cut away valve guides and porting etc) it was bored out with studebaker lark pistons from memory 60thou oversize they had a huge wedge on the top, it was in an MG TC with a wilson preselector gearbox out of a daimler.
it went like the clappers till the guy crashed it, i bought the head for my FC as my fc had a cracked head.
