Bought this motor as an assembled 545 with older cobra jet heads(script looking casting) sold roller sud girdles etc etc
I took it apart to take a look at things and freshen it up because it was an unknown to me.
after taking it apartI saw this and I have never seen a 460 block with this chunk missing.
Wheel Tire Light Automotive tire Locking hubs
Wheel Automotive tire Automotive design Rim Tire
Casting flaw? Junk block? Ok for low spring pressure street motor?
I have already put it back together in another block because I chickened out but now Im wondering if this is worth sticking in a 65 f250 as a tow vehicle for a race trailer.
let me know what you think. Thanks in advance

IMO not a problem or concern, a typical knock-out and no critical strength lost in that location. I'd use it for anything that's suitable for that type block.
