Sure, as long as the block isn't cracked or the cylinders aren't scored too deep.
LOL LMBOStickman said:"Anything after about 1973-74 is about 50-60lbs lighter. Oil shortage years,"
I think you meant to say "Oil Shortage CONSPIRACY years"
Blocks and heads manufactured after 1975 are lighter than the 1975 and earlier ones. However, I believe the 60 pound figure (for a block) is probly a little exaggerated.Berliner Bel Air said:I wouldn't rebuild any Mexican block. I understand that the Mexican blocks are 60 lbs. lighter than the good old castings that came out of US foundries. 60 lbs. means a lot less iron and thus a lot less strength.
