SHORT BLOCK SPECIFICATIONS
Blocks are available in 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 35, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46,
47, 54 and 61 cubic inch assemblies. To use a Short Block Assembly, the ignition, carburetion and starter parts are transferred
to the Short Block from the old engine. If additional new parts are required, they are supplied from stock at regular parts prices.
Short Block Assembly instructions and an Illustrated Parts List are included with each Short Block. Carefully read the
Assembly instructions for specific information pertaining to the assembly being used.
Each Short Block Assembly includes a metallic self-adhesive label to be applied to the engine, adjacent to the original nameplate.
The label bears a symbol (example V-51) which must be added to the original type number (example 0125 V-51) when
replacement parts are ordered. The label must be applied in order to correctly identify the engine after repair with a Short Block.

and maintenance costs because of the extended valve life.
