The NASCAR or pillow blocks. Wouldn't be easy to find though.

Cleveland blocks were never cast in Mexico, only Windsor.

Just find a late Aussie cast Cleveland block. Pillow blocks or Nascar are just too hard to find and not necessarily very good either because the ones that had been turfed out into production vehicles often had core shift problems.

Mexican blocks weren't much better than other blocks really. Slightly thicker webbing but still fairly weak.

Just go the Dart block . Yes a little pricy initially. You’ll SAVE on machining latter . Well it’s actually a Windsor with 9.2 deck height . Clevo main bearing .
