My personal opinion trash the block. I ran a .060 over engine and had overheating problems from the get go. Find a virgin block and start there, I'll be farther ahead.
My two cents!

60 over blocks are basicly on ly good for drag raceing mayby you can find someone with a good block and trade or sell it to a drag racer. just a thought.

That's no boat anchor. I've been running a .060 block for three years now with no overheating problems.
