Crack checking blocks and heads builds reliability. Don’t let a cracked block or head get in the way.
Reliability is key to any engine build is a quality base. The block and heads are critical. Sometimes this can be difficult to validate. Along with the standard dimensional checks we get the block and heads up to operating pressure/temperature and run coolant through the system. Circulating 200 Degree F is the best way to check these components under real world conditions.
