    Make sure you know the length YOU need.

    Early blocks are different than late model blocks.

    Cast BAE blocks are different than late model ones.

    Hope this helps!

    Of course Robert is correct. Much of the used stuff is for older blocks.

    I have been told by more than one team that you still torque the bottom row less than the top row even if you have 9/16 studs all the way around. Both of these teams that told me this was pushing head gaskets until they went back.
