Author Topic:   Newer Style Block Adapters?
posted October 12, 2003 12:04 PM
I have a chance to get a sbc from a TBI truck for free. I'm planning on building a 383 for next year. I searched the forum and found that the cranks for 1 piece seals are more $ than the older ones. I read that there are adapters made so you can use the older cranks. Does anyone have any info on these? I don't want this block if it's not strong enough to work for me. If anyone has an opinion on these newer blocks, please share it with me.

There is adapters made to convert to the 2 piece seal cranks . But ....... by the time you buy one and pay to have it installed correctly , you have made up the difference in crank price ......or surpassed it .
