If I'm not mistaken the TD and TB blocks are identical. Not sure about the head though... :think: :think:

Not even remotely.

The TD42 is a wet-liner block, whereas the TB42 is an integral block (IE no loose sleeves).

The heads are COMPLETELY different.

Unfortunately, I have gotten rid of the head I had here.
And I don't think Michael has a TB42 engine at his shop?

Yeah , sorry Peter, you are 100% correct. I was thinking more on the external shape of the block, The mounts are the same and the manifolds are the same, so I assumed the block design will be basically identical shape wise..... It was monday and I had a brain fart.... :biggrin:
