whats the casting number of the high nickel block? i think it's 511, but not sure. their two bolt mains as well i believe. please correct me if i'm wrong.

i can get a dart aluminum block, all 5 mains are 4 bolt's. the oil pan rails are spread .800", & it takes big block cam journals, & i would have to run a remote oil filter. i can get it for $ 1,000 bucks. the only thing is, i've been told a oil pan to wet sump the block will cost $600 bucks. plus i can't find one that will fit my 85 ss monte carlo, in fact i haven't found any yet.

what to do, what to do.
