World Products Aluminum Block for Big Mopars


World Products Aluminum Block for Big Mopars

Did you know that World Products makes aluminum Mopar blocks? They are
available for big-blocks and Hemis. The regular iron and compressed
graphite versions are also available. Click here to see the aluminum-block page at the World web site, or read the official info below:

World Products engineers have collaborated with leading MOPAR
racers and developed a highly refined version of the original 440-style
WEDGE bock. It’s been designed using CAD/CAM 3D technology not
available when the original was developed, and is manufactured to far
more critical specifications. The WEDGE features dual pattern MOPAR/GM
bellhousings, more efficient lubrication, and can be ordered with
raised cam locations. This is the ultimate block for MOPAR applications!

GET IT PREPPED!
For the enthusiast who is planning to assemble an engine in their home
garage, getting the block in a RACE-PREPPED state is a no-brainer. Our
experienced staff performs important basic operations like:
• Deck milling /- .0025”
• Main journal honing /- .0004”
• Cylinder bore plate honing .001” oversized /- .0005”
• Lifter bore honing /- .0005”
• Block hot tanking
• Cam bearing installation
• Freeze plug installation
• Dowel pin and pipe plug installation
• Block deburring
• Machined surfaces sprayed with rust inhibitor
• Protective wrapping
More and more professional engine builders are also recognizing the
benefits of ordering race-prepped blocks instead of endeavoring to
perform these many tasks themselves. Many have realized that their time
can be better spent doing critical assembly work such as degreeing in
camshafts and setting up the valve train. By employing race-prepped
World blocks the shop’s through-put can be accelerated, and there are
demonstrated savings in terms of personnel, shop equipment, space and
cash flow.

Whether you’re an enthusiast or engine builder, save time and money!
