Product Description

Our economy 351 Windsor short blocks are just the ticket for that budget build! Our remanufactured short blocks start as good cores that are dissassembled, then placed in state-of-the-art, environmentally safe burners, followed by steel shot blasting to clean. The blocks are magnifluxed, inspected for cracks, bored and precision honed to manufacturer's specifications. They are then fitted with new, .040"-.060" over cast aluminum pistons and cast rings*. 28-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. Short blocks do not include cam or timing chain. Each economy remanufactured shortblock includes a 90-day, 4,000 mile limited warranty**.

The cylinder bores are machined the minimum amount to bring them in to spec, between .040" & .060". All bores will be the same size. If a cylinder cannot be bored back to true, then a sleeve will be installed so that the block can still be serviceable.

* * * NOTE: Must Re-use original threaded oil filter bung.* * *

*Cast aluminum pistons and cast iron rings are recommended for naturally aspirated combinations only. Not recommended for superchargers, turbos, or nitrous. Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.

**Some conditions apply. This is a replacement warranty only. Labor and shipping costs not included in warranty. Installing incorrect parts, Overheating, abuse, or lack of regular maintenance may void warranty.

We recommend breaking this crate engine in properly. Latemodelrestoration.com will not be held accountable for any damages that may occur due to improper break-in methods. Normal break in conditions consist of 500 miles at normal operating conditions.

  best bang for your buck
By on 6/24/2014
I bought this short block to drop into a 1994 GT roller. Block came with .40 over Sealed Power pistons (awesome) and was machined well. This was the first step to my 351 build/ swap; best bang for your buck.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
