That sounds like an EL/AU Hybrid block. They used an AU crank within a modified EL block.

They are a better block and crank for strength. And are generally smoother than their EF/EL equivalents.

If it came from an EF, then someone swapped the engine into this EF. Otherwise it must have come from a very late EL. Very few wreckers know of these engines.

So if you want to keep rebuilding it, its off to the bearing shop for some AU bearings.
