I don't know where you got this info from but I hate to tell you but you CAN use an older crank in a newer block and can not use a newer crank in a older block.

Think about it when those Bowtie blocks came out in 1986 we used a lot of older cranks in those blocks in the circle track engines we built back then.

We use quite a few of the newer blocks for the circle track engines we build and we use a different seal adaptor for using the older cranks in newere blocks.

Believe it or not here is a pic of a newer block with a older crank
