A note on stamping engines

Recommended Posts

Just a note about stamping engines; Chevrolet used a broaching process to deck their blocks. This process is very different from the resurfacing machines used in most machine shops, which are usually rotary cutters, like a van norman.

These machines leave a very different finish on the deck surface, which will be seen by those who know what to look for. I have had engine pads inspected for this by potential buyers.

If somebody decked my block, I'd want to know about it. Years from now, it could cause problems.
