It should be ok.
Get us a part # or a casting # of that block.

The factory 502 was not as strong and was weaker in the main webbing than the BowTie was.

The head gaskets and gen 4 heads are not easily compatable either but cam be swapped and made to work.

I was trying to look up the problem with that block and Ed hit
it on the head about the webbing, it should be fine but the article
said they would not waste their time on it, and i don't know if it
was the gen V or VI but you had to use the stock timing gear
due to clearence would not allow the use of a dbl roller, they did not
have a after mkt cover for it, i could be wrong but i think it was
one of those blocks, they made changes on the 572 block.

Ed i admire the biblical verse i remember reading:
" For when you speak my name and spread my word, they will
throw rocks and close the door on your face, but when you
have come to rest with me, you shall have eternal life with me"
man thats nice spread the word

signsbyesa,
Thx,
I like the verse you quoted. I am sorry to say though I do not know where it is. Will you be so kind to PM me with it? Also if you wish a very encouraging uplifting song to hear I will be happy to send you or anyone requesting it an original song written and sung by my oldest daughter.

Send email that will accept a 7 mb attachment.

The scripture quote in my signiture, is my very favorite of all. iT means that God desires we all speak praise to him. All means everyone no matter who they are of what they are in their life. This is not a speacil reserved word or message for only the religous elite. This is for everyone who breathes air. Us, the impefect and sinful people we are he still loves and wants us to talk to him.

I try to live my life, as a real and walking testimony. I do not beat people over the head with my bible. I do not wish to be obnoxois.

Ed
