Does anyone know if all the Dove 460 blocks can be bored .140 over ? Or
is it just the ones with the A that has dots around it ? Ive found 3
different ones there all A blocks but one has the A with the dots
around it ,one has the A ontop of a square,and the other just says
DOVE-A on the side of the block.

Any help would be great

well, ive always went by this.. the older blocks including the cj/scj 4 bolt
blocks have a flat webbing across the bottom of the block where the main caps
are. this part of the block is actually machined straight across. and these
blocks are desireable fr stroker motors. while the older d3ve blocks are cast
below where the main cap sits tward the outer edges near the oil pan rail.

No matter what year, sonic testing, or boring it out and then running it,
is the only way to know. My block in my puller has a 4.470 bore. well, at
least that is what it should have. even with concrete to the water line,
the walls are so thin the move and flex and i am sure change size quite
drastically when the fire burns inside and she's turning small block rpms.

save yourself the headaches, sonic test. and then you'll know right away
that if one cylinder is shifted a little, it can be bored a little off too,
to keep enough wall thickness. not the most desireable situation, but
functional. Nothing beats an experienced hand with a sonic tester. the
only other choice being bore em out, and hope that it works. is that much
of a choice? not in my opinion.

Dan, another alternative in ignition systems is the "Pertronix" system.
Goes in the your distributor in place of the points and is almost
invisible from the outside. (2 wires) No control box. Just upgrade to a
better coil. They sell for around $60 from several suppliers.
AutoKrafters, Northern Auto Parts, etc. I'm in the Ford Galaxie club, and
several of us have converted to this system with good results.
Good luck, Phil 64 F-100 (w/ Pertronix)
