Yeah if its a 660 block, you want to try and stay away from them. Unless they have been rebuilt and are known to be good.
At least 2/3 of them have webbing cracks bad.

Is there any orange/red pant on your engine?
If you have an orange/red 82 block so you likely have a high Ni alloy block and those are highly saught after by 6.2L builders.
I'd say rebuild it, thats a good engine, or at least a good block.

82 6.2 C-code is better (for fuel) and for reliability of the block

Thumbs up

Very good block. The '81 date code means high Ni content to those who know these. There is actually a lot that can be done with the 6.2. SCAT made a run of STEEL cranks for the 6.2 a few years back, I wonder who they were for?

Close view of the mount, there is a rubber mount you can't see between the engine and the perch
