World Products has revised its small block Ford castings to make the blocks even stronger and easier to build. Available with a 302 style 8.200″ deck height or a Windsor style 9.500″ deck height, the Man O’War blocks are packed with performance enhancing features such as higher grade iron alloy for even greater strength.
The 8.200” block is a direct bolt in for 5.0L Mustangs and is compatible with OEM heads and exhaust systems. The 9.500″ block works with all the 351 Windsor style components. Both have siamese cylinder bores with thick walls which can be bored to 4.200″ and extra thick decks with six head bolts per cylinder for secure gasket clamping.
The cylinder barrels are extended into the crankcase at the bottom by 1/2″ to provide superior piston support with long stroke crankshafts. The 8.200″ deck blocks have clearance for a 3.500″ stroke crank and 9.500″ deck blocks are clearanced for a 4.000″ stroke. Billet steel or nodular iron splayed 4-bolt main caps are fitted, with dowels and stepped register and ARP fasteners. Main fasteners have been changed from 1/2″ to 7/16″ in order to provide more material in the main webs for higher strength. The priority main oiling system has been improved to reduce restriction and deliver more oil to the main bearings first for reliable lubrication at high rpm.
