Yeah, I saw that on another list a couple of days ago. I think it was a supercharged stang. It is surprising it is still in one piece at all. Looks to have cracked almost in two.

That is unreal, I have never seen anything like it. I've seen engine spaghetti last year. But nothing like that.

What gets me is it didn't tear up the crank, etc.

Quote:
Believe it or not but everything is ok, the crank, rods, pistons and cam are all fine. The motor stayed together but that's because of the bellhousing, intake manifold and timing cover. If it wasn't for those it would have been all over the engine bay and the road. One thing you need to look out for is coolant. When the engine died, I got out of the car and noticed coolant was all over the ground. Check my sig for numbers.

Well I'm not upset at all, I knew it was going to happened I just didn't know when. It kinda gives off a cool vibe, knowing that my car made enough power to split the block in half. Oh Well its time to build big and better things
All I can say is..WOW!!!!

Was it welded?

Is that stud in the lifter valley welded in place? Can't tell for sure from the photos, if so, I'd bet that was the source of the problem. Anyone on this site know?

Yep you beat me to it I was just about to ask that when I scrolled down to your post.

That deffinately looks like it was welded prior to the break and the crack seems to divert around the weld, indicating that it is an old weld not one made to hold it together afterwards.

Just a thought.

Craig

EDIT..Then again the shot showing the two peices not held together, although not very clear doesnt clearly show the stud in it. Maybe it was done to hold it together for some reason?

here is the post from the man himself.

Well this motor came out of a 87 f150, which didn't have roller lifters, but it was drilled and tapped for the spider springs. But the holes were not clean and the bolt broke off when I use tighting it up. So I had to improvise and drill the hole back out and weld a stud so I could bolt down the spider spring. Its a little ghetto but it worked.

As for the drain back hole, they were there when I first pulled the motor apart about two years ago. So I guess the block came from the factory with them.


__________________

someone there suggested maybe next time he should also drill some holes in the sides of the block to lighten it a little while he was building his next motor up.

What sort of person welds thread to an engine block?

answer one who takes pride in said engine cracking in half

enough said

Craig

I have seen a SBC break almost the same as that Ford block but it was due to a low quality balance job using universal caps welded into holes bored into the cranks counter balance material.

They were used to hold heavy meatal rods in the crank. One came losse and detonated the block, broke two rods smashed 3 pistons, broke the cam in two. That was one big break and the guy was really p%%%sed because it was all new, brand new block, crank. the lot!!.

That motor was pushing out some serious ponies too, but the HP did not cause the crack. That Ford motor at the start of this thread was almost cerainly caused by that weld. You can see he has done little more than weakened the block with the weld.

Props to him??? What for? Anyone can weaken a block like that.

He may have been making good HP but then he should know better than to weld in that stud right?

I say what a waste!

Ford Chev.. whatever. It dont matter what type of motor it is or if it is stock or modded welding will end up in grief IMHO maybe if he had over sized the hole in the block and tapped for a thread larger than needed he would still be using his motor. instead of taking credit for his stupidity. I know some will not appreciate my opinion, but it is still a waste.

Ok I have had my rant..now ducking head ready for the response LOL

hey man i know all these problems are possible in any car at any time, i just find it amusing, i duno why, just do. I dont mind the criticism from you, or whatever, i was giving props for such a cool break, like the others said, those would make some wicked end tables, or some decent sized 4 bangers.... you decide.
