So appartently the block that was in my WE4 was .040 the shop didnt check the bores told me I had to get the block bored so I ordered .030 pistons. I thought I had a standard block when I dropped everything off. So now I have a balanced rotating assembly and no block. Im really more upset at myself than anything right now I should have looked closer at the cast pistons that were pulled from the block.

So anybody that has a block laying around that can be bored .030 over give me a call or a PM. Also if anybody is going to BG let me know there is a couple for sale down there too.

That sounds like a "bad news (withdrawal)/good news (block work underway)" scenario.
Nice that you got a block, for sure. Hopefully soon the good news will overcome the bad...
