WOW!! They do exist! Are all 5 mains cross bolted? Looks comparable to mega blocks and world blocks. How long did it take to get it and approx price range? Thanks for sharing,

Brian

What’s with the raised area on the upper timing gear thrust surface on the BD block?

it's not raised, it is flush with the timing chain cover, same as a stock block. But it is a little narrower, i believe that is because it's been drilled for a 60/55 MM cam. I sure if you ran a stock cam size it would look "normal".

That is interesting. I have had a KB Hemi block on order since December 2018.

It took 16 months for my wedge block to come in ordered Oct 2018. Communication with my dealer was great. Not so much between KB and my dealer. Took a lot of calls, emails and complaining by my dealer to KB to make this happen.

That area has been machined so that the mounting cover of a Jesel belt drive system will fit.

Superfreak,

I just picked up a Hemi block with the same part number as the one in your pics yesterday. It has never been built, and was curious about it. So I guess it is a World block. Any idea when these were produced? Do you have spec sheet on it?

The pad near the fuel pump is stamped:
0811060A445
P5153861

Question.... I have a Hemi Block with the 2468330-M casting number. What is an acceptable cylinder wall thickness? I know the final bore after hone is 4.503. I'm going to contact my machinist and have him sonic test it.

Thanks

No idea when these were produced. Bought mine from Dave Dudeck and it was new untouched but how long he had it for, I am not sure.
P5153862 is on the fuel pump pad and on the side of the block it P5153843 so not sure what is up with that.

You want it as thick as possible, many of the Mega blocks have failed, cracked, at 4.500 whiney
As far as cylinder wall thickness if it is less than .160 finished on either thrust side I won't use them for a serious N/A race motor twocents
I would love to have one that is .250 or thicker up
Maybe my Koleno block will do that at 4.560 luck

I repaired/freshened up a 622 ci Koleno block that was 4.600 bore. It was already a running engine so I didn't have it sonic checked. I do know that it was one of, if not the first, Koleno block that was built into a running engine, block #11. Don't know if that will matter to yours.

Thanks Cab and Superfreak,

I had it checked today. The worst was # 8 which was .164 on the outside which if I'm mot mistaking is the Major side. The rest were from 172-200 except #7 which had a sleeve put in back when it was new because it checked thin.

It's N/SS car, high 9's to 10.0 under 7k RPM with a 7.100 rod.

Thanks again!
