    Hey guys/gals...

    WTB 440 Mopar block, std bore only (unless fresh .030 over), what you got. Located in So Cal so would like to keep it in a couple of hundred mile radius... due to shipping.

    Thanks,

    My builder told me there isn't any real differences in the blocks year to year in regards to buildability and hp capability, just in the nickel content and that veries from block to block. They all need checked for core shift before built if you are planning serious HP.

    Thanks Guys-

    Yes, the earlier blocks are more desirable, but putting together a small stroker for my Coronet (500Hp). Just a street piece... if I was going for big HP probably go with am Indy block anyway.

    I appreciate all the replies.. looks like I'm hooking up with Short Bus to pick one up in a couple of weeks.

    Your builder needs to do a little more research! 68-73 blocks are the strongest and the 74 up are the weakest, thinner castings, less nickel and bad core shift.

    Rivereliminator, you getting your kit from 440 Source ? they are out here about 4 miles from me.

    I trust both of the builders I talked to and the books I"ve read on it. Even 440 Source's web site will tell you the thinner casting on the late blocks is a myth. And they have the test results to prove it.

    Post Stroker kit

    Hey 65' Sanger-

    Yes, probably go with thier's or my machinest likes Scat stuff. I was looking to go inexpensive route, being he is a W/D for Scat we might end up that way.

    As far as the blocks go, I'm sorry snoc653 (not to start any sheeet) but I agree with 65 Sanger, I have built a number of 440's and the decks on the later models are definatly thinner (not all). Also have Sonic tested a number of the cylinders... core shift and poorer casting in the later years...

    Just my .002
