The engine builder who has given me heaps of advice, has just put together a stroked engine using a bored and decked second hand block. The engine ran for an hour before seeping oil into the radiator. After a strip down the block was found to have a corrosion crack at the base of a cylinder due to the age of the block and lack of anti-rust used in the cooling system. Something to consider with a second hand block.
