Sounds right to me ... seems like I saw a diagram once that showed it, but
maybe that was just in my head .. the idea here is to increase the strength
at maximum bore ... of course you lose some cooling capacity, but likely you
only want/need a block like this for a vehicle that runs the 1320 and that's
it...

Just my $.02

Nashville Network just had a demo on these yesterday on Trucks. Looked
pretty slick, but I can't help but to think they'd be hard on your
steering system and bearings.

Subject: FTE Perf - Hard Blok?

Any one have an opinion on filling a block partially with hard block on
an everyday driver. Is there any chance this stuff might come apart and
start floating around blocking passages? Could it be removed by a via an
acid bath or other process?

I'm talking right now to a guy with this setup for sale:

1969 351W Block-align honed,decked & squared,bored .030 over
- --ARP Head studs
- --DSS main support girdle w/main studs
- --lower part of cylinders filled w/hard block

4340 Forged Steel Crankshaft-4.00 stroke/2.100 rod journals combined
w/.030 block will make 408 c.i.

He wants $875
Application aside, is this a good deal?

Steve, other than the fact that this block has lost roughly half it's
cooling capacity, it sounds like a good deal.

Subject: FTE Perf - Annual AFTE/FTE charity event

The Association of Ford Truck Enthusiasts (AFTE), the non-profit
club made up of Ford Truck Enthusiasts (FTE) users, is holding
their first annual charity event (actually, their second, though
they were not yet organized as a club them).

This year, AFTE is raising funds for two causes:

1. a list member's son who is a paraplegic and could really
use a decent laptop with voice recognition software. He
became disabled last year and needless to say, he's not
in the best of spirits. I think we can bring a little
joy into his life.
2. the Georgia LoRiders, a long standing Ford truck club,
is raising money for the family of a child found in the
family swimming pool. The child is brain damaged and the
father must stay home to take care of him because the mother
is VERY pregnant. AFTE is going to donate any money left
over from item 1 to the Georgia LoRiders for this family.

There are three ways you can donate:

1. Send a check or money order to:
Association of Ford Truck Enthusiasts
re: Charity Drive
Box 562
Tecumseh, MI 49286-0562

2. Via credit card on the web. The FTE web site is set up
to take credit cards. We're going to add an item to the
cart for this. You'll be able to select any amount you
want. All funds will be forwarded to AFTE for their
drive. The address is:
www.motorhaven.com

3. Via credit card on voice mail. FTE's phone number is
770-806-1955. Leave name on card, type of card, card
number, expiration date and amount to donate. Also,
PLEASE leave an address so we can mail a receipt to you.
All funds will be forwarded to AFTE for their drive.
This number is busy in the evenings!

The laptop purchase receipt and the check cut to the
Georgia LoRiders will be scanned and placed on the web
site so everyone will know their donations were well
spent. There will be zero administration costs. All
money will be spent for the charity.

Regards,
Ken Payne
