    Default New Block in my shop

    I received my new Tomahawk block a few weeks ago. Haven't had time to even remove it from the crate, other than to take a quick glimpse when it arrived at work.
    I don't know what the serial number is at this point. I'll need to look at it again soon!

    It's a raised cam block, so I'll need to do some fabbing or work with Jesel for a timing setup. That won't happen for some time though, as I'm not even recovered from the move. In fact I'm real close to building some BACKORDERED Tomahawk pans for customers and I'll use the block for the ultimate work jig!

    Maybe in a year or so...........

    The new place is good, but taking WAYYYYY TOO LONG to finish!! I'll post some pics in due time. I hope to be building some Buick parts SOON.
