I knew a guy in high school whose dad had one of these. It was basically a stripped down Viper block. He also had the world's smallest replica Viper engine that ran on propane. It was awesome. He engineered a transmission to match it and used it to drive an old-school pencil sharpener. The guy had all kinds of cool toys.

i think 2 sets of spread legs would be more suitable holding that glass up.

your thinking of the 305, the 350 4 bolt is a pretty stout block.

mmm...not realy to stout in the terms of high performance. a 2 bolt block with splayed caps (making it a four bolt) is much stronger. most people will run a 2 bolt block with or without splayed caps before they will trust a factory 4 bolt block.

if for stock aplication the four bolt blocks hold up just fine.

you can build a very decent 350 with a stock 4 bolt caps. Although our ideas of HiPerfomance might be a little different

Most stock 350's used 2 bolt caps. That works fine for stock applications

I have seen some pretty stout factory 4 bolt motors. but like maynard said, i guess it depends on what you mean by high performance

Sell the 4 bolt block. You will need the money for oil for that leaky sonofabitch bike of yours.

true true, you can build a miled street motor sticking around 450hp with a 4 bolt block and be perfectly safe.

when you get in the range of 500hp and up the stock 4 bolt starts having main cap walk. the 2 bolt blocks with the splayed caps eliminate that.

Did they hold up better than regular end tables out on the porch with the tv and couch?

the motor that was used for the table in the orginal pic is actually an old pre-1970's oldsmobile aluminum block that the guy sanded and polished up. There was a write-up about that table not too long ago in design magazine I had.
