Are you REALLY so clueless that you'd send out an OEM 4-bolt block for caps, studs and a line bore and hone???

Even the rankest beginner knows that a 2-bolt block w/splayed caps is the preferred way to go about it! LOL

Just because you have this ultra-tough OEM 4-bolt block that breaks tooling w/it's amazing metallurgy, DOES NOT make it what is needed.
Preferred.... If you have not noticed as i have been saying this whole thread, this build is an experiment. I want to test the integrity of the old sb's.

Also if you failed to read like you have a few other times, I have never touched a motor with more than 6cyl. This is a learning experience for me, and for everyone to immedietly jump me saying you cant do this you cant do that, it gets kind of frustrating in the long run. Its nice to see how "hotrodders" treat other people that want to experiment in that field.

2 bolt mains dont have enough area to keep cap walk from happening.

just because i asked a question about oiling does not mean i am ignorant.

Don't drag others into your **** fest. Tell me, dw- what fitting 4-bolt splayed caps onto a 2-bolt block has to do w/the amount of area that a 2-bolt cap has? You have NO clue.

And, yes- not knowing something as BASIC as cylinder wall lubrication puts you at the bottom rung, knowledge-wise.

What they are talking about is companies are manufacturing 2 bolt 350 blocks, and cross drilling into the main webs to convert it to 4 bolt. Yes everyone knows that an angle is stronger than a straight line, thats why they are doing this.

I hope what you meant to say, is companies make 4-bolt caps to use on production 2-bolt blocks. No one I know of in the aftermarket makes a 2-bolt block.

If just ONE post could be made by you or majoroweage that wasn't just full of errors...

Yes 3rd gen. Not my favorite but the 4th gen engine compartments dont look to be to "mechanic" friendly. I chose the 3rd gen because of engine bay size.

Nelson recommends AGAINST this. That is my point.

Yes that is what i ment to say.

And you sir are exactly the prime example of the reason Im not even sure i want to get into building muscle cars. Maybe its your way of trying to "help", but flipping around and making everyone feel "underqualified" to even pick up a wrench is not help my friend.

Every post where you keep churning the **** by telling this guy to "go for it" "it can be done w/enough money", etc. Easy for YOU to say, being as how you have ZERO invested in this, except to incite things.

Again, so what does this guy recommend?

Arp hardware and 2 bolt studs. He says the caps have more area to contact the block, and are therefore more stable and less likely to walk. With two more extra holes in the caps, there is just not enough contact area between the block and the cap.

YOU, my friend, are the one who jumped up on a soap box proclaiming to one and all that you were gonna do this, gonna do that, and telling me and anyone else who dared to question you, that basically we were all wrong- all "haters" (w/no help, you being egged on by this majoroweage piece of... work), and that you could do anything you damned well pleased, physics and common sense be damned.

If, instead, you'd have come on here and asked questions instead of making grandiose statements, your reception (from ME, at least) would have been MUCH different.
