DriveTrain / Re: im sure everybody asks this..400 rebuild
« Last post by tb on June 19, 2018, 10:46:35 PM »
I thought I would piggy back on this thread instead of starting a new one.......I'm in the process of rebuilding a 1977 w72 500557 block.  I have discussed outputs with him and will be in the range of 350hp and 400 ft lb of torque.  The builder has stated that he would like to use " Main Studs " to give it bottom end strength.   

My question is about the spring loaded slotted dowels that were only used on the w72 block. From what I read, these spring loaded slotted dowels helped induce less stress on the main web area during high RPM use.  Will this method of using Main Studs together with the slotted dowels further reduce stress on the the main web area or will this combination cause more stress. 

Thanks very much.

Still looking? If you could live with a 403 and can put a little bit of elbow grease into it:

Black on black, charcoal graphics, T-Tops, looks to be very original, but.... it's a 403. And it's rough. But damn cheap!
