The duck patrol is watching. So I guess , even though, it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, a duck it does not make ! I too have a (later than C J )production block, which has all the ingredients of a C J. So when I decide what I'm going to do with mine, I'll be sure to call it something other than a duck. At least on this website. Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck selling yours. Thats a fair price. Barry R. calls them a rare find in his FE book. Thats why I'm hanging on to mine. Leland
I don't think Royce or Hawkrod meant any disrespect or insult, they were just providing more complete info. After all, this is the FE forum and you'd hope that you'd be able to get the correct info here. I'm not bagging on the OP, nor do I think the others are. But the lead info was misleading at best and downright wrong at worst. If one were looking for a correct CJ block and did buy this one then they would be out the $1200 with no block. On the other hand if someone is just looking for a good FE foundation and "correctness" isn't a factor then this would be a great start.
Enough of a description was supplied for determination

of prospective buyer to decide. Date code tells all, right!? Description of ribbed block tells the rest. Isn't a service block sold as a factory re-man replacement? Is it because a block wasn't removed from a C J car, that determines it is not a C J motor? Problem is not with Royce/Hawk. From the info I've recieved on this forum ( which I highly regard), the 428 I purchased has ALL parts used in a true C J motor, but the date code is after C J's were available with the F E motor. I have and will continue to call it as such. If I decide to eventually sell it the prospective buyer will be advised ( and should be knowledgable of ).Thanks for the clarification Steve, Your input is appreciated. David was not IMO trying to Pull the Wool over anyones eyes). Leland
