A friend here does alot of FE stuff.
He purchased a Genisis block. Was not a good experience.

Waited twice as long as promised for a block just to find that it wouldn't flow water around the rear two cylinders.

It is now a very expensive end table.

After shopping around I decided to go with Ponds Alum block. Genisis blocks need a fair amount of work I was told, and availability is very spotty. Robert was great to work with as well.

It's not mine.  It belongs to a machinist I know.  When I see him, I'll ask him.
He has a website, I just don't remember it, but I'll find a way so you can talk with him.
