Response to Unusual block issue
Is there any evidence of an engine assy date / inspector code or VIN on this cyl block? Or history that the cyl block actually came from a vehicle? Any repair process would have to been developed, verified, then signed off. I doubt no one would of wrote a pink deviation form to repair only one cyl block, too much time and effort involved, over the value.
It's possible this cyl block was scrapped at DEP, then was sold to a Ford Reman for disposition/repair, then somehow was "liberated" from there. Recall the 427 cyl blocks that went to Fred Jones with missing tapped holes, broken taps in the cyl block, oil passages that leaked, etc. ... . Years ago, I set up a program to ship our scrap production torque converters to FAR - Alma Products, who would cut them open and salvage usable "premium" internal components for remanufacturing other converters.
