There isn't. MKs stop with IV and the GENs start with 5 then 6. But it too anal for most to want to read or hear.Is there such a thing as a Gen 4? I thought they were Mark V. I thought the Gen 4 was in with the new generation of small blocks.
Matt, thats because its a MK IV BOWTIE not a GEN anything.Sorry guys to many different blocks out there mine is a older style 502,two piece rear man seal it doesn't have those stupid looking water jackets, and damn sure doesn't have that bolt pattern timing cover, i will get a casting number so you guys can clear this up for me. thanks might be easier to sell not sounding stupid
Obviously I just put it up to get you to laugh,, I knew I had seen various designations on the things. I don't bother trying to correct anyone with MK or Gen,, as long as the 4, 5 or 6 is correct.Thats a good one Barry. They can't even get their own damn designations correct. The funny thing about that is that the reason they went to the GEN designation was that Ford had the MK V and VI tied up and GM didn't what to get into a legal tug a war with them. Then they use in the casting. Thats priceless. You notice under that it does have G-6. I have seen them with MK in the timing chain area, but never with a VI with it.
I never had any doubts as to why GM went bankrupt. That is a a perfect example that the left hand has nmo idea what the right is doing, and NEITHER pay any attention to the mouth and brain.
That's about as cheap as you can find a good Bowtie block, don't see many for sale.Cool i knew they keep you around here for a reason, what are these blocks going for in good shape barry was interested in it but i dont really know what its worth i gave a 1000.00 for it probably got screwed around but whatever.
