Default C69A block

I have made a blue on my spare engine, Didn't,t check the wall thickness before I bored it (3-3125),Turns out one cylinder has a part of the wall at .070 thick, this made a squeak at idle that I think was the bore letting the comp past,
So, I sort through my spare blocks and find one that looks good, Its a C69A and has the oblong water passages above the valves like an 8ba, instead of the usual small round ones, is this a Canadian only thing?
Also what do you use to mount the engine stay rods to if you use an 8ba block in an early car.
Thanks Lawrie
