That was an International 466 block. They have been having problems with them splitting in half, top half from bottom half, due to the boost they are running(200+ pounds). There was lots of debate about letting them run an aftermarket block vs a stock block. I think just recently a ruling was made to allow the aftermarket Hypermax blocks.

Double ouch. :eek: :eek: I don't know what a full tilt Pro Stock DT466 costs over there, but I believe they are close to $80K here.:eek: I feel sorry for that guy if he coughed two of them apart. Don't think the IH motors are the only ones having problems, all of the different brands have a weak point. Go till she blows.:D

I threw a rod in a Craftsman pressure washer a few years ago. I thought I was special until I seen this.
