smoothed out engine block?

I was reading the rulz for the www.superchevyshow.com and was wondering what a "smoothed out engine block " is.


Can anyone please define this term?

Pictures are always good


Thanks
Rob

I've got two of them here, smoothed engine blocks- that is.

I spent about 30 hours total on the 327 inside and out, and about 20 hours on the 400, the oil returns from the lifter valley were the main concern, then I went on to smooth a set of heads for the 400, then I just went overboard on them both.

I did the outside of the 327 for looks, and the insides of both for hotrodding sake, I even went as far as tapping all the holes in the lifter valley of the 327 above the cam and crank for short pieces of pipe nipples so the oil would not drip down on the crank, but flow to the ends and down. I haven't had time to touch either of them in almost 10 years except to smear a good layer of grease to keep them in "suspended animation" until I found more time and money I have always had plans on dropping a 327 crank into the 400 block for "the 350 never built- but should have" I read that article in one of the magazines YEARS ago, now time and funds say "later dude".
