    Default Modifying a D9TE-AB block

    Got this D9 block to replace my D1VE.
    Long story short-I have to use the crank from the D1 unless I want to change my motor mounts due to counter weight interference.
    So, I whipped out the die grinder and took out just enough material in about 10 spots to clear the crank.
    Made a paper feeler gauge and I have about .050"-.055" clearance at all the mod spots.
    Other than a little de-burring at the bottom of 2 of the cylinder bores I should be good, right?
    Looks like I have plenty of clearance and did not go into any water jackets or anything like that.
    100 years from now, none of this will matter.

    You will probably be fine,with that being said i would not be messing with a stock stroke crank with a 460s rather tall deck and chineese stroker cranks being so cheap..
    you are leaving huge amounts of power on the table
