i have a dart iron eagle shortblock at bennet racing being built. all the machine work has been done by Bennet and the block has been machined to except a belt drive or a stock timing cover.
the machine work is what makes it worth what i'm asking! you can't get this machine work done but at a handful of engine building facilities in the country. only 4 that i know of.Fully 5 axis CNC machined. Machined off the Ford factory blueprints.
machining 45 degrees to the center line of crankshaft & camshaft centers, thus putting decks exactly 90 degrees apart. All bores on place on the center line of crankshaft and on the exact bore spacing per Ford blueprints. Lifter bores are angle corrected and location corrected also of the center of crankshaft and camshaft.line hone block, hone cylinders with torque plates, blueprint square deck, notch for crank rotation, notch for stroke clearance on rods, machine block for double roller retainer plate
the block is an iron eagle 9.5 block with all 5 four bolt billet main caps.

the block is used it has 12 passes on it and i spun a rod bearing.none of the internals will be reused

this is what the motor will consist of.
brand new SCAT 4340 forged crank 4.00" stroke, zero balance
brand new SCAT 4340 forged H-beam rods 6.200"
brand new ROSS custom pistons for an inline valve head it will be 11:1 compression with a 58cc chamber.
and all new coated bearings
everything will be brand new except the block,which was new only 3 months ago. i paid $6800 for this shortblock. now i am having it rebuilt and i'm selling it to cover the costs.
this motor is still at bennet being built.
Price $5000

believe me i wish i knew. cause if i knew why it happened thenmost likely my engine builder would be rebuilding it for free.
it may have been a clearance issue or it may have been my fault with improper break in.,but i'm betting the first one.
