I received two new Ritter Blocks today. From what I can tell these blocks look really good. The casting is real good, even inside the water jacket. All the machine work looks good. It will need the be finish bored and honed, deck surface, and line honed.

That looks real nice, what kind of power do you think it could handle?

Whitedart,
Thanks for the offer on help, I’m going to need it.

Anyway these are both going to be stroker W9 deals
1.) 468cid, Brett Miller W9’s, 4.250” Stroke x 4.185” Bore
2.) 451cid, Brett Miller W9’s, 4.100” Stroke x 4.185” Bore

I’m going to have a Shop do the machine work (Bore, hone, Line hone, deck) and I have no idea what it will cost.

Power-I believe by looking these over that they can handle whatever you want to throw at them. ProCharger, Turbo, Supercharger, Nitrous you name it.

The two I’m building are N/A 48* carburated.

I haven't seen the phrase "pressure test" used, yet. Given the Ritter block's history, wouldn't that be a must-do operation before doing any machine work to one?

It returns the front bay through a drilled hole that goes to the timing chain area and the other bays by a hole in the rear that returns to the oil pan area. What I mean by bays is the cam bearing saddles kind of create a bay in between each cam bearing saddle.

#2 through #5 have a channel that directs flow to the rear.

I'll try and take a picture this weekend.
