    Chinese look a like Little-M block

    We have one in shop right now and have looked it over and checked it for brinnel test and it seems to be a very soft block as it tested in the low 140's

    To give you an idea a 010 block is around 180ish and SHP block tested mid 190's and the Little-M and Big-M are mid 230's because of the nickel content.

    It lools like the block is finished honed and I have not probed it out for locations for deck heights, cylinder bore loctaions, lifter bore locations ETC.

    Looks like once the cylinders were honed they decked the blocka nd left a burr at the top of the cylinder as there is a zero chamfer on the tops of the cylinders.

    The lifter bores have a huge ridge at the top and on the bottom of the bores I would assume from machining the soft cast iron.

    With that soft of bore it would wear the cylinders out in a short time as well as the lifter bores.

    The rear main cap is not even flat where the pump sets on and they have welded what it looks like a insert where the threads are.

    I will post pics later on and what we find for demensions in another thead.

    For right now it does not look like a very high end peice and is surely a copy cat of the Dart Little-M block

    I beleive PBM is selling them with their name on them!!

    Are these blocks better or worse than a factory 400 4 bolt main?

    I agree but you probably have more China crap than you care to believe. MADE IN AMERICA doesn't always mean it was MADE IN AMERICA.

    FACT!

    I worked for a company that had some stuff made in CHINA then unboxed it, washed it in a hot tank, stamped the part number on it with a pin stamp and "USA" and repacked it.

    You know that's illegal right? The owners of the business can be fined and jailed by the US government for doing that.
