It seems to happen a lot. And the builder's got nothing to do with it, nor the brand of crank.

Gilroy's:


Blacktop's:


Flyin'FoxBody's:


Etc, etc.

They all have one thing in common - stock blocks. My stock block cracked in a bunch of places, but I caught it before catastrophic failure happened (and I had a girdle - probably helped keep everything in one place). No more stock 8.2" deck blocks for me.

That looks like the water jacket's been cracked for a while - is that rust?
