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.
