As has been said ... a professional engine builder would probably just grind the slot in the block or cap to accept the bearing tang.

2Fox:
Chill out, buddy - nobody's pissed at you (yet). Keep coming back with responses like that, and you will turn everybody against you. Your question about what's the biggest stroke you can put into a 460 block is in no way relevant to the original post, so - chill and create a new post to ask your question, or as was suggested - use the search function. relax, and enjoy - it won't hurt a bit.

Yea,like's been said,don't take it personal. Think about it this way,if you had ask that same Question and it was going real well and you were getting some good responses.Then someone ask's a Question about a A460 block and the thread turns completely around in a new direction. Thats why the guy's suggest a new thread be started. Many times the thread goes completely off camber if you don't police it. We're not upset at you,so just start a new thread and get the answer you really want. "Peace brother"
