Product Description

Our economy Mustang 5.0L short blocks are just the ticket for that budget build or swap! These blocks are great candidates for naturally aspirated, or forced induction street/strip applications. 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 Speed-Pro FORGED aluminum pistons and moly rings*. 50-oz. cranks are precision ground to recommended specifications, and micro-polished. Short blocks do not include camshaft.

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.* * *

*Always check piston-to-valve clearance when installing aftermarket performance heads or cams.

**This engine is considered a performance application and is not covered by any manufacturer's 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.
