Unhappy Need 454 gen V block only , In tri state area

I am looking preferably for a bare block only. I need one with a standard bore so that I can machine to my specs. If any one has one re any leads on one in the NY, NJ, CT area please contact me ASAP.

I just had my boat all finished after a 2 year long project and I ran it for 2 hours to find that there is a crack in the block in the lifter valley that is leaking water into the oil. I am so close to being done and now this I don't think I will have a boat this year But I wont give up. Some day I will shake this curse

Cp Performance sells bare blocks, Merlin @ $1700, GM 502 @ $1200. Also maybe try some of the engine builder sites, Cobra, Eickert, etc. My advise would be to buy new.

Sorry to hear about your troubles.

Thanks Ken , but I had the motor totally custom built by some one you recently belt with and I ended up having a crack in the block right after I got it running in the boat but it didn't have it when they dynoed it . they say its a factory defect but I still have to hash it out with them in a few days. the budget has ran beyond its limits. I cant afford new. and a new block will have to be machined anyway. I just want to swap the parts into a refinished block and get this head ache over with. The motor has all new custom parts in it and a small blower so I am limited to a 454. Thanks for your help. Maybe one day I will see you at Gullies

Paul

I have two guys that were going to make a few phone calls. I should hear back from them late tomorrow. One guy can get a brand new Gen. VI at a good price (so he say's), as a last resort.

Hotboat, I know your pain, the same guys blew my motors this spring! They did the right thing and rebuilt at their cost, and did a great job.
