I spoke to him about that block and my buddy Tommy actually saw it. Its an early on center block that is not cross bolted in the front and rear mains which isnt a big deal but... The biggest issue I had with it is since it is a new "green" block they require a good bit of machine work. At the price he is asking by the time you machine the block you are at what a TA block cost maybe more depending. The guy is nice and said has a few blocks. He did have a nice used block again on center no cross bolts 4.025 bore. It had roller cam bearing installed which I have run before but again you have to cut the cam journals down and there are extra machining to account for oil passage. He wanted $3500 for that block which is a better deal considering it is less machine work. I just did not want to deal with the extra BS of the roller cam bearings. He also mentioned he had two other damaged/repaired blocks which I did not get details on at the time but they may be good options if repaired correctly.Fellas...just an FYI. Saw this block on Fakebook Marketplace. Not sure if that a good deal or not as I am new to the stage 2 world..
