Oh, make some horsepower!
To those of you that have blocks on order and have not received a call yet, if you can find a moment please try and give Sherri a call. This will help speed things up for you. We have also been asking that a check be sent for finial payment. Were not to willing to give the card company's that much for there short period of labor in this project. Sorry in respect to that.
In response to Michael Evans and others. We have been tagging the blocks with some things we do when we build them here. Take the time to really go over and de-burr your block, the machine shop doesn't seem to take enough time so please go over it. Bottom tap threaded holes like timing cover, oil pan, motor mounts, transmission etc. And CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. The water jackets have aluminum chips, core sand and steel shot in them. I have been blowing them out but they really need to be flushed out. MAKE SURE when installing the screw in plugs that they screw in with your fingers to the o-ring. If they stop, remove and see if there is a piece of steel shot or a chip in the threads.
Got the call yesterday.
Same here John. :3gears::3gears:
I was told earlier this week, That I would have tracking info next week.
You're not kidding......I've been trying to get my hands on an aftermarket Buick block for over 10 years.....
Still patiently waiting.
0470114 just arrived and it is SEXY! Dimming the lights now and putting on some Barry White...........:Brow:
Come on guys, need some new block buildup threads.
Great to see the second batch coming out.
Don't hurt yourself man.......:Brow::TU:
How are the serial numbers determined?
Same as the first batch
000 - Block number, 00-00 Month and Year it was produced
Mine is 0291110, number 029, Produced November 2010
I was thinking it was a little different.
My block : 0321110
032- number block sold
1- batch number
Maybe we should ask Mike for the corect answer.
No, Royden had it right..
Your block is number 32, from the original production run that came out in Nov 2010
3 blocks after Royden's in the numbering.
I'm squished between you and Michael.. #0311110 checking in..
