Anyone know what the depth of the water jacket around the cylinders 
(3000 block) is suppose to be?  I measured about 5 1/4 inches from the 
top of the block down to something solid.  I'm sure that there's some 
variation in the castings, but if it's suppose to be 7 inches then I 
know I've got a good bit of crud in there.
