Hi all,
fisrt sorry for my bad english, I'm french...

could someone advise me regarding a idea that I have.

What do you think about boring an oldmobile block to 4 inch with wet tliner ?
the 6 bolt by cylinder will be great for this bore?

thanks for your help

Been tried by someone that was quite experienced with Rover V8s. Didn't end well.

96 mm x 90 mm, what is that ? 5.2 litres ?

What is the rest of your engine, cylinder heads, carb or fuel injection ?

If you want displacement, consider using the 300 Buick block as a starting point with possibly the 350 Buick crank for a 5.6-5.7L displacement and greater strength, reliability and durability. It's a proven combination.
