    Mexican block

    A friend of mine has a Mexican 302 which he has squirreled away at the back of his garage. He has often wondered about the casting marks on the block, as they are different to the US built units, and I thought the collective MOCGB knowledge maybe able to help him :)

    he has tried the usual decoder sites, but the info based around the Mexican blocks isn't always consistent , any ideas?

    If I remember correctly, the Mexican blocks are better guality, less pourus casting better for machining.

      Yeah, I've read about them being a desirable block.
