The resurgence in popularity enjoyed by 426 Hemi-powered race cars and street machines has taken another step forward with the release of a refined 426/440 Hemi/Wedge race block by World Products. The blocks are available in aluminum or compacted graphite and carry Mopar casting numbers. They accommodate all OEM Chrysler components. World’s engineering team has taken the 426 Hemi, which made its debut in 1964, into the 21st century through use of 3D CAD/CAM technology. The refined Hemi/Wedge block has superior casting quality and exceptional consistency. It also incorporates a number of features that are a result of collaboration with leading Hemi racers and engine builders, including Ray Barton. Available in 4.250" and 4.500" bore sizes, the block can accommodate a 4.750" stroke crank if an external oil pickup line is employed. The block comes with standard or .250" raised cam tunnels, which can be bored to 60 mm. Lifter bores can be spread up to .100" and machined at any angle from 45-51°.
