Re: Possible to fill a used block?
i wasn't planning on it. i have talked with a few guys that have not had any issues with bolting on a girdle and not having it line honed. i don't like the idea of tearing it down and putting used bearings and rings back in. im not going to rebuild this motor unless it goes back in with billet rods and other high hp parts.
my main concern was the hard blok disfiguring the cylinders.
rough plan was:
bolt on girdle
pull heads, clean block
add hard block, torque head
repeat on other side
pull heads, drill water passages to heads
have heads surfaced if needed
bolt heads back down and torque.
if it works, it works. if it eats a bearing, then i guess i'll have to build a comp motor for it.
