Back on Sept 3rd I asked:
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.
Just one response, so I decided to have a spare 29E block cleaned at a
machine shop (baked and shot blasted). I got it back and found the
water jacket height at most holes to be 5 1/2 inches. The 29E block in
the car measured about 5 1/4 inches. So there is probably some crud
there. Will check additional blocks as I run across them.
