Hopefully someone will start making the oil pressure relief valve seats again to go in all these new blocks.

Now that is an EXCELLENT suggestion.

Given the shrinkage differences between iron and Ali, I assume that they were not looking at using the same pattern equipment? I anyone can loan us an old block, we could price this up quite quickly in case of further delays on the one shown.
That's what I couldn't understand in regards to this one off Alloy Block, any pattern used to cast it, would be wrong for CI, unless you wanted a smaller scaled version. About the only thing I could see from it was a trial run on the CNC Program for machining them.

That is EXACTLY what they were done for.

Let me have the details and a sample and we will have a look at it if there is genuine interest.
