I think I have a thread on them somewhere. The first ones have already been put on engines. They are over 7:1. I will post them again in a new thread in order to not hijack this thread.

The ZIM NEWARK container ship is at the dock in Savannah, GA, and the container with 156 "New Engine Kits" is being off-loaded.

The "New Engine Kits" will be transported to the distribution warehouse in Franklin, KY where they will be disbursed to buyers.

Terry we are in the process of starting the clean up of the blocks for the 5 motors we purchased for here in OKC. With all this heat a little Christmas in July goes a long way. We so enjoyed meeting you and all your crew in Kerrville and would like to say thanks again for the tenacity to see this through.

Thanks for your interest in the new engine and your comment. Try to stay cool and enjoy the build.

I'm updating the "Builders Guide" and hope to publish a revised guide in the next 10 days.

If you need an adjustable analog modulating relief valve that can be used on a stock Model A oil pump to provide adequate pressure, please contact me at model.a.engine@hotmail.com and I will provide details. In the next revision to www.burtzblock.com, the relief valves, front, and rear main seals and the special bolts for the oil filter and oil pressure monitoring will be offered.

In total, 616 "New Engine Kits" have been delivered and another 156 are scheduled to be here in September.

156 is the number of "New Engine Kits" that can be loaded into a container due to weight.

A good friend just dropped close to $6K on a stock rebuild of his Tudor motor, with babbited bearings.

He told me this week 'I may have made a mistake. Wish I had spent the money on a new Terry Burtz block'.

His had a small crack and they stitched it.

I thought to myself, but said nothing to him, YES I would definitely have driven down the Terry Burtz Avenue on that project
